Tips to Keep You on Track

Work-Life Balance for Business Owners

One of the biggest struggles for employees and business owners alike is trouble maintaining a healthy lifestyle in and out of work. Do you have a good work-life balance? See if you do these things.

Do You Have a Good Work-Life Balance?

You Have a Set Schedule. One of the hardest parts about work-life balance is meeting expectations. If you have a set, realistic work schedule (even if it is a long day at 7AM to 7PM), the clock can serve as a reminder it’s time to put down the work. Plus, it will help your family members maintain realistic expectations.

You take time to take care of yourself. Whether it’s 10 minutes of meditation right after lunch or a 15-minute jog before heading to work, building time into your schedule for you can help you maintain your sanity.

You put your phone down. Even if it’s just turning it off! Put your phone on Do Not Disturb during dinnertime to focus on your family, and leave it away from your bed at night.

You take vacations. As a business owner, it’s hard to put work aside and take time off. Put a big vacation on the calendar for a year from now. Plan a mini-vacation for next month. Leave after work Friday and get home on Sunday afternoon so you don’t need to take time off of work but you still had the chance to get away and reset.

You understand there is no “perfect” situation. Things are going to come up at work that rock the balance you’ve established, and there will be something at home that needs to be prioritized over work. Understand there likely won’t be a perfect situation, but you can make the most of it.

You are a franchisee. Many franchising opportunities provide the support franchisees need to succeed. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel if it already works! Use all the resources your franchisor offers. JDog Brands offers a variety of tools to help our Veteran and Military family member franchisees find success.
