Health Tip: Find a Healthy Balance Between Office and Home

(HealthDay News) -- Establishing a healthy balance between office responsibilities and home life can help boost your health and well-being.

The American Council on Exercise suggests how to balance work time and home life:

  • After work, unplug, relax and leave your work at the office.
  • Focus fully on one thing at a time without letting your mind wander to other responsibilities.
  • Allow for regular down time to enjoy hobbies, creativity and physical activity.
  • Ask your employer about flexible scheduling options, allowing you to be available for issues at home.
  • If possible, avoid additional responsibilities that add stress to your life.
