    You can balance between your work and personal life without affecting one.
    What you need to do is to have a clear idea of what you need to do and write them in your diary.
    If you do so then you will be psychologically driven by what you wrote.
    If you are living with your family then you can go out on the weekends and have some fun.
    Go to cinema, shopping, beach or other entertaining places with your friends and family.
    At work placed also there is no need to be a strict worker, you can have friends there and hang out with them.
    However your work is important as your are workaholic I think you will take care of your work

    After you have a family you have to think about them as well you cant just keep on working. You are saying you are workaholic it good that you are so dedicated towards your work but you have a family now and you have to compromise something in your life.

    Try and spend a little more time with your family.

    On weekends dont think of work instead just be with your family and give them your company.

    Take some holidays and go for long trips once in a while to freshup the relationship as well as your mind.

    A tired mind cant work really well isnt it?? that is why its better to take some rest and enjoy so that you can do your job properly.

    Make sure you call atleast 2 to 3 times a day and speak with you family and if you are married then with your wife . It makes them feel that they are important and it makes them happy

    I believe family is everything not even my work can stand between me and my family.

    Give a little bit more importance to your family and your job will automatically get better and better.

    Hi. You should begin your day with yoga/meditation. It will keep you energised and focussed throughout the day.

    If you dont pay attention to your personal life you will lose the love and care of your family. This will make you an unsatisfied individual and sooner or later you will not be able to concentrate on your work due to emotional probllems.

    When you come back home from work forget all your tensions and worries of your workplace and spend time with your family.

    You should concentrate on what you are doing at the moment rather than diverting your mind towards other things.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    Its really good that you are a workaholic person and you are passionate about your work but you must be knowing that excess of everything is bad.
    If you work continously and forget everything then it will badly affect your personal life
    Work is not everything.
    you need to get a life.
    If you want to maintain a good and healthy life then you should make a balance between your personal life and professional life.
    Work and give all your attention to your work at office hour.
    but when you are home , give all your time to them, Spend time with them.
    Share your feelings and discuss your problems and ask for opinion.
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Plan an outing with your family.
    Socialize with people.
    visit your friends and relatives.
    Celebrate your life.

    Thank you

    Re: How to balance Professional life and Personal life?

    We've all faced, are facing or bound to face this predicament at some point or the other. Things move far too fast in the hustle bustle of today's world and you can often be left feeling as though you hardly have any time for your family, friends and leisure time with incessant work commitments, not to mention any time for yourself. For a while, you won't let it get the better of you but trust us, everything catches up on you in the end.

    Taking all these things into account, we drew up a list of tips we felt might help you strike a finer balance between your personal and professional life. If you choose to apply them in your own life, we guarantee they'll leave you feeling happier, healthier and better rested too.

    Without further ado, here they are.


    Before you begin your journey down this path, it's important to identify exactly where your life is out of balance in the first place. Perhaps you're spending far too much time at work and your family time is suffering or perhaps it's the other way around. Either way, it's only once you've given yourself enough time to figure this out that you can really create your plan of attack.


    You'd be a fool if you hadn't seen this one coming and yes, it's most certainly the key to this entire exercise. You have to be able to put the things which are more important to you above the others. There's no need to vocalise these priorities to anyone else in your life but it's important to have them sorted out in your own head so you know what needs more timework life or personal life. And there's no right or wrong hereno matter what anyone tells you. Just make sure you make this decision with your heart.
    Basically, at the end of the day you need to be able to be realistic about what needs to be done first.

    Make Lists And Schedule, Schedule, Schedule!

    Being organised can help you a great deal in this scenario. Try to make a list every morning with your cup of coffee which will include both your professional and personal commitments. The latter could include something as seemingly inane as a 'will talk to *insert wife/girlfriend name here* for 20 minutes on the phone today.'

    Once you've made the list number them according to priority and tackle them accordingly. It will make the entire process seem much less complicated and you'll get a lot more done. This will also help you in refraining from multi-tasking and tackling things one at a time instead. No matter what other people tell you, this is the only way to get things done well. Or at all.

    Leave Things Behind

    Now this is the step most people find impossible to master but it's vital that you leave your personal life at home when you go to work and vice-versa. Or you'll basically never be able to focus on or enjoy either entirely. Force yourself to do the same for a little while and we promise it'll only get easier.


    Stop being a martyr and taking everything on yourself. Learn how to trust other people and delegate both in your professional and personal life though the former is more important with respect to this point. Allowing other people to help you will only increase your downtime which you can then effectively use to satisfy the other part of your life.

    Learn How To Say 'No'

    We're definitely going to have to write a whole other tips article on this one but learning how to say no is an art you have to attempt to master. Often in our need to please others we say 'yes' to things we really wouldn't want to do; leaving us with little or no time to take care of our own priorities.

    If you want to achieve a good balance, say 'no' when it's necessary. It will make all the difference.

    Alone Time

    And finally, don't forget about yourself! It's impossible for you to do any of this unless you're scheduling a little time for yourself amidst all this hectic running around between your two lives. It could be something as simple as reading a book or taking a walk in the park.

    Either way, just because we saved this point for the last don't assume it's the least important. Quite the contrary actually. After all, if you're not content and happy withyourself, you won't be giving your all to either your professional or your personal life.

    That's all we have for now, best of luck in striking your balance.

    This is one of the biggest problems of most of the professionals especially the ones who are tied up with the private sector companies.The world has paced up a lot and new and new challenges are to be faced everyday and that too they have to be quickly solved to sustain oneself in this rat race.The work pressure has increased a lot since the clients and the customers are demanding quicker and quicker services.They want their work to get accomplished as fast as possible.

    Hence the competition has also increased a lot.Any professional organization who fails to provide a quicker and better solution is sure to lag behind.Nobody is ready to give even an inch of the ground to the other organizations.Everyone is striving for better and better perspectives.As a result,the employees have to face a high work pressure and it is a common scenario of employees getting messed up with their personal and professional life.

    It is often seen that the employees bring their personal life into the professional life and vice versa.It is a common scenario that there is quarrel in the personal life due to professional work mingling with it resulting into reduction of its space and time.Some times it is also seen that the personal problems are reflected in the professional works and as a result the performance at the professional sector is affected a lot.

    Hence it is necessary to balance both the life by allotting separate time for both.You have to be effective at time management inorder to restrict both of them to get mingled.Try to finish your work at a quicker pace and in the office only during the working hours.If some work is left,assign a separate timing for it at your home which may be the time when the household is busy with some cooking or television.You should keep time for outing and also giving personal time to your family.When the work stress is going beyond the limit,you may restrict the higher authority to assign more task by saying No.Do the works according to their priorities.Enjoy the holidays to their fullest.

    To balance personal and professional life you shoild never mix these together as that will create a chaos to you. When you are at workplace then never discuss the things related to your home and all forget all those things that happened in your home as those will not make you able to work. Also you should not discuss the office things with your home members because they dont qant to listen all those crap. Beat way to stay away of these is to be a man with no emotions.

    Re: How to balance Professional life and Personal life?

    Hi Dear, It is very important in life to maintain a balance between our personal and professional life. If our profession gives us resources/money to lead a happy life, our friends and family shower love, compassion and contentment in our lives. So, maintaining a state of equilibrium in both personal and professional lives is very important and highly desirable. As far as your profession is concerned, you need to understand what exactly do you need from your job. You need money, position, power or contentment. Then work as per your priorities. Do not make promises of exaggerated returns, rather work as per your limitations and not as per the rat race which normally is seen in every field today. Have a clear picture of the agenda of your daily job and avoid working in a confused state of mind. By this I mean, Do not try to be a jack of all trades but take up may be just three chores a day and be a master of all three. In case, any work is out of your reach or you are incapable of doing it, do not take it up and start panicking, rather take up the responsibility which you are a master of and do it skilfully. In addition, try not taking work pressures to your sweet home but when you reach home, enjoy with your family, distress yourself and socialize with your friends. Also, plan your holidays and go for outings to send quality time with your family. And the most important thing is - Eat healthy, sleep well, and maintain a healthy routine. Thanks.
