IndyHub is proud to partner with Anthem to bring you this special series highlighting strategies for self care and seeking help to address issues of mental health.
Young professionals are often engaged in numerous activities outside of work. Not only are we striving to further our careers, but we are creating small businesses, finding time for a passion outlet, starting our families, maintaining friendships, and more. Crafting a plan to balance all of those things is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle to ensure you do not become overwhelmed.
Some key takeaways:
- Create an action plan for your idea of work/life balance
- Keep a mood log to evaluate and identify when you’re feeling overwhelmed
- Be flexible to change– being adaptive can help your balance
- Say no to the opportunities that will not serve you in your goals
- Involve your doctor when needed– especially if you are feeling overwhelmed
