    Office commitments forcing me to ignore my personal life

    I am working in a MNC. There is a lot of work pressure on me and as a result of these numerous office and work commitments I am unable to give time to my family and friends. Thus in this way these office commitments are forcing me to ignore my personal life. How to deal with such a situation in life?

    Hello

    This is a very common yet critical problem now-a-days.

    But this should be ignored saying "I am too busy with my office work" or "They hold a higher priority"

    In the midst of this you should not forget your family and friends who are a vital part of your life.

    Do not get too involved in the work that you totally forget your family and friends who needs your time and attention.

    you should learn to maintain "work-life balance"

    -->> Set priorities.

    -->>Maintain a schedule

    -->>try to complete office work at office and do not carry the work or tension to home.

    -->> Spend weekend with your friends and family.

    -->> Take a vacation or holiday.

    -->>Practice yoga to maintain a peace of mind.

    Thank you

    Dear Friend
    It is really sad that most of the professionals have to go through this situation. It is mainly because todayís world has become more competitive. There is a lot of competition out there and we have to cope up with it or else someone else will put you behind.
    When you are in this kind of a situation, you will be over stressed as you donít get time to relax and ventilate. This can cause other problems related to health and mental issues.
    There are a lot of ways to overcome this situation. But you need to choose the best one for your lifestyle.
    I suggest that you prepare a time table. But first find out how much time you spend in office, how much time you spend at home, and how much time you spend for yourself. Make adjustments to your time table. Try reducing the time you spend for office work whenever possible and increase the time you spend at home with your family and for yourself.
    Take a off on weekends and donít bring your work to your home. Office life and family life should be separate. But there should not be any compromise while handling office work. So whatever you do, just try to do justice to it. Be a champion at office as well as at home.
    Spend some time, doing your favourite activity or hobby daily. Or you can spend some time with your kids, take them for a outing. Or take your dog for a walk. Talk to your family about what problems you face at office, this will ease your work stress. Play some music or listen to music. In short just have some time to do what you love.
    Donít worry everything will be alright.
    Good luck....

    Hello,

    I can understand your situation.In order to handle the entire scenario,you have to make a balance between your professional life and personal life.It is essential for you to maintain your professional life from where you earn bread and butter,at the same time take care of your family and loved ones.I know it is extremely hard to maintain both at the same pace,but if you make some careful adjustments then things will be easier for you.
    Firstly,you have try not to bring office load at home,so that the time you are at home,you can spend some quality time with your family memebers.
    Secondly,optimum usage of work hour in office will help you to reduce your work burden
    Thirdly,On weekends take out your loved ones to some nearby places of entertainment or interest,and give time to them
    Fourthly,if you can wake up in the morning,you can go for jogging with your family members.Not only it will enhance your good health but also you will get a scope to spend some more time with your close ones.
    Fifthly,Make it a point to have dinner all together at night.This develops a strong feeling of closeness.

    If you take care of these little things then I think situations will get better.

    Dear the same situation comes in front of so many people but you should not be disappointed because this situation will not be too longer in your life and in future you will definitely be able to give enough time to your family and friends

    This is the time in which you have to work hard for sometime but not more than 1 year because in first you will have to be dedicated to your work only then nothing because this time you will have to make your image good in the company and once you made that then you will not need to make it again that is why first of all you should work hard and keep working and performing good in your company

    When you get free from your work in evening or night then you should directly go to your home and have some rest then take some time to pass with your family and if you feel tired then you should take some rest and give some time in morning and for that you will have to wake up early everyday and give at least 1 hour for your family and try to avoid everything else in your office excluding your work and responsibilities because if you will concentrate on your work then you can easily complete your work and save your time at least 1 hour then you may get time for your family and try to make yourself energetic to survive for a long time everyday

    All the best

    Dear Aspuirant,

    This type of problem is very common to those who give more importance of office works.You should learn lessons from your seniors as to how they are managing both the affairs.

    The following tips may help you in order to overcome the probles;-

    # Try to complete your office works daily in the office itself.

    # Have a schedule of works with the priority.

    # Acquire essential knowledge in order to complete the works rather fastly.

    # Be punctual .

    # You should not be always thinking for office works.

    # Don't hesitate to ask from even juniors to get knowledge in any regards.

    Thanks & Good luck.

    you should always give spend your valuable time with your family always by doing this your stress level definitely get reduced and you feel relaxed and joyful.. sir, i can understand your tension and work pressure,your commitments but don't carry forward your tensions to your mind and don't abuse your body.. you should keep your week off's joyful atleast your week off's should be happy for you forget about your tensions lead stressful life on your weekoff's..do meditation and yoga have breathing exercise every day. if you do all this i am sure that you can reduce your stress level,tensions.. you should always be cool at work and being tensed and apprehensive will not help you anymore..
    everyone have work pressure you need to meet your targets and goals that relate your development that doesn't mean you stop all your commitments and personal life never should be ended you should always take special attention towards yourself.. health is wealth your priority should always be your health...
    share your office burden with your wife ,friends their boosting and encouragement is enough to reduce your stress, work pressure talk to people relax its not all about work in MNC you should have some social life and gathering in your life..

    Hi aspirant

    This is a very common thing now-a-days due to the excessive stress in one's life. Today , in any field, you will face the same problem as the work commitments are so much. So as a result you are bound to give less or no time to your personal life. But this depends from individual to individual. You have to organize and plan everything so that you can spend enough time with your family apart from completing your work commitments on time. Now it depends on you that how efficiently can you manage your time.

    You should try to finsh your daily work upto a certain time so that the rest of the time you are carefree and can spend that with your near and dear ones. I hope that you are getting my point. You should not waste anytime if you really want to spend that with your family. You should divide your tasks into small modules and compete each module within a specif time period so that you don't have to give excessive time to anything thus sacrificing the time you had to give to your family. I hope that you learn to manage your time and then your life will be much easier.

    Good luck for your future and keep loving your family
