The folks at Hustle + Gather don’t want you to aim for work-life balance.
Instead, they believe in striving for integrating your work and your personal life into a healthy day.
“Integration is about accepting, embracing and harnessing the power of bringing your full, unabridged self to every moment of your life,” they said in a recent article for Catersouce.
Here are their tips for achieving an integrated lifestyle.
- Update your workspace. Comfort and joy shouldn’t be confined to the before- and after-hours of the job.
- Define your own schedule. Humans don’t always work best from 9 to 5, so work when it makes the most sense for you—when your productivity is at its peak.
- Don’t let your boundaries go unnoticed. Enforcing boundaries is key to protecting your time and energy.
- Get familiar with yourself. Recognize your body’s responses to stress so you can curve burnout before it happens.
