How to Create the Perfect Work/Life Balance

If you do not take time out of that busy schedule, all the stress can take a toll on your life and health. In the current day very many things are contributing to high numbers of unhealthy people.

Another problem with the current life is the monotony and insecurity of their jobs. The lack of challenge and fear of losing the jobs is a factor that has contributed to lack of good health in many people. It helps to ensure that all the time wasted is put into more useful activities. This will ensure keeping all the muscles and the brain active which will help ensure health.

Honesty is also important for perfect living. Ensure that you do not take other people’s duties. This will not help them better themselves. People should be allowed to do their duties, make mistakes and learn from them. It is part of growing.

Taking steps towards minimizing the sources of stress in life helps keep one’s health in check hence prolonging one’s life. These steps including working for reasonable hours and having reasonable workloads. Overworking leads to stress which can lead to one becoming a robot and hence reducing their efficiency. This involves as earlier mentioned honesty even to the superiors by telling them that the workload is too much and impossible to finish in the time given.

The work day seems to be lasting longer and longer so it is important to find some balance

Take breaks scheduled in a day. This will help replenish your energy for the next part of the day. These include tea break and lunch break. Enjoy the meal in peace.

Apart from these ensure to keep the right office hours and not go overboard by overstaying at work. Separate your work life from your office life. Do not carry your work from the office to your house. This does not mean taking a break it just means changing the environment but keeping up the activities. The time given to go home is meant for one to relax before going back to work for the next shift. Even after getting home do not just jump into house chores. Ensure you actually take a break and relax before jumping into the other duties. Take a nap, a walk or even soak in a bath to relax.

Once in a while like over the weekend take a break. Find a new scenery, drive away and relax, take a vacation to replenish your energy. Listen to music very often. Let it carry you away to a peaceful place and enjoy it.

This is time that has been recovered from previously wasted time which is now used for relaxation and rejuvenation of oneself. Taking these steps will ensure a healthy living even in a life with its ups and downs. Remember life is like a rollercoaster, take break from the rides to clean, grease and maintain it or it will break down in no time.


Is your boss a psychopath?

It is a real possibility that one in twenty-five employers can be a psychopath. I will show you just how an employer can be two people in personality. They can be both very charming and emotionally disconnected at the very same time.

The film Psycho featured Norman Bates who was a violent psychopath

Do you honestly hate your boss? Has it gotten so bad that the boss takes credit for your work or leaves you to pick up the pieces that belong to any task of issues that he creates? The psychologist, as well as, co-author of the book Snakes In Suits – When Pyschos Go To Work by Paul Babiak is a book that does analyze more than 200 personalities belonging to professionals in the United States.  From a checklist, which was developed by Robert Hare, who is from the University of British Columbia and called the Psychopathy Checklist. Paul Babiak did make the discovery that about 4% of these working professionals did fit this criteria. This is 1 in 25.

Mr. Babiak did assume right away that these working professionals do get their game working good on the job market. This is because he or she is able to convince managers of their specific forces. “Psychopaths are very capable of making an awesome first impression,” he openly explains. They are very charming and impressive in their own special ways. The truth is this. They are very bad managers and aren’t at al interested in their profession or the business at hand. They tend to also only think about themselves.

To make a long story short, psychopaths do hide behind their own masks, and they tend to carry themselves as being charismatic leaders. However, in reality, they are nothing but hollow and empty shells. Nor do they express their emotions and are devoid of regret or guilt.


Contrary to popular beilief, not all psychopaths are serial killers

There are some studies that do clearly show that psychopaths do express a real difficulty in understanding the very nature of feelings. This is something that does clearly display their insensitivity and low emotional IQ. About half of the patients that Paul Babiak has are from the world of finance. Is their interest in money something to do with why they are psychopaths? This psychologist does suggest that these psychopaths do live as parasites. “What they are is clearly obvious. They are opportunists that do attach themselves to people as if they are parasites and drain off their resources. This fact is something that Babiak does illustrate in detail. What these psychopaths do is to seek the easiest way to get their way. They are naturally attracted, and do gravitate to wherever money is, which is the world of finance and business.

The truth is this. A psychopath can indeed be betrayed by his or her own behavior. “Studies do also indicate one thing. They do tend to have an issue with alcohol. They develop an unhealthy relationship with it,” states Dr. Babiak. Some people may be very quick to label his or her boss a psychopath. Please do be very careful in doing this. We seem to love accusing people of things. However, just be very careful, don’t go making accusations if there is no proof to back it up.

If your boss is a psycho or just a cruel person, refrain from dumping or displaying your bitterness of Facebook or Twitter, because it can be just the thing to cost you your job and livelihood.

The one solution to this problem would be just to simply get another job. Again, be careful here, and don’t let your boss find out that you are looking for another job. He might fire you based on that fact. You may also not find another job very fast. You can tell him or her to take care of their own problems, as they aren’t yours, they belong to him or her.
