Minimising blurred boundaries

It is important to take care of yourself and minimise the blurring of professional and personal boundaries.

Some strategies may include –

  • schedule a regular lunch break daily to restore your energy and help manage stress. If possible go for a walk, get some fresh air, then give yourself some time to read a book or magazine
  • balance periodic social breaks to chat and connect with co-workers and colleagues with uninterrupted time by yourself to focus on your days agenda and priorities
  • maintain your desired work schedule without allowing others such as co-workers, employers or crisis, to compromise your ability to leave on time for the majority of the time.
  • make work talk off limits during lunch breaks, as a general rule. This includes office gossip and criticism
  • minimise multi-tasking each day to avoid burn out by the end of the week.
