保持工作和个人生活平衡并不容易,但对我们大多数人来说都非常重要。事实上,有很多员工一直为雇主效力的原因就是工作生活平衡。


Striking a balance between work and personal life isn’t easy, but it is extremely important to most of us. In fact, a strong reason why many employees stay with their employer is for work-life balance.



经证明,那些在工作和生活上拥有更好平衡的人,会更有成就感和快乐。你会掌控自己的生活,因为你拥有选择,而不是被迫做出牺牲。

在你身心更健康的时候,你的压力会随之减轻。因此,如果你感到压力过大或劳累过度,可以考虑采取一些改变,取得更好的工作生活平衡。


It’s proven that those with a better work-life balance, feel more fulfilment and are usually happier. You are more likely to feel in control of your life because you have choices as opposed to being forced to make sacrifices.

You’re also likely to be less stressed and as a result be healthier, both mentally and physically. So, if you are feeling stressed or overworked, there are a number of changes you can consider to better your work-life balance.


 评估你的时间管理和优先排序能力

Assess your time management and prioritisation skills

首先,你应当审视现在的工作方式,决定自己需要什么样的平衡。其次,你是否能够管理日常工作时间里的工作量?如果不能,你是否能通过更好的时间管理和优先排序达到同样的结果?


Firstly you should look at how you work now and decide what balance looks like to you. Secondly, do you manage your workload within normal working hours? If not could you achieve the same results with better time management and prioritisation?


考虑灵活工作

Consider flexible working

雇主有很多适合你的灵活工作选择。一种是灵活办公地点,例如远程办公、在家工作或其他办公地点。


There are a number of flexible working options that employers utilise that could work for you. One such arrangement is that of flex-place working such as telecommuting, working from home or other office locations.


在家工作具有明显优势并且可以节省通勤时间,但并不适合每个人。很多工作需要面对面交流、在办公室工作或涉及敏感信息,在这些情况下就无法远程办公了。


Whilst working from home presents obvious benefits and reduces the time taken to commute, it’s not for everyone. There are various jobs where face-to-face interaction, presence in the office or sensitivity of information means it simply isn’t an option.


对于在家工作的人来说,保持积极性也是一个很大的挑战。家里的事情很容易让你分心或者被家人打扰。必须通过自律制定一天的计划和创建有效工作议程。由于这种工作方式的孤立性,应当了解自己可能会感到非常孤独。


Staying motivated is also a big challenge for those who work from home. It’s easy to get distracted by things around the house or interrupted by family. One has to have self-discipline to structure their day and establish an effective routine. It can also be very isolating and people should be aware they can feel very lonely.


如果在家工作对你来说并不可行,弹性工作时间可能是另一种解决方案。采用弹性工作时间,你可以更有效地进行工作计划,避开高峰时段的交通拥堵,提高工作效率和减少时间损失。


If working from home doesn’t sound like you, flexi-working hours could be an alternative solution. Flexi-hours can allow you to plan your schedule more effectively and avoid peak hour commuting, resulting in increased productivity and less hours lost.


如果你的职位允许或者非工作原因要求你减少工作时间,你也可以选择减少工作时间、压缩工作周数、兼职工作或工作分担这些方法。


Reduced hours, compressed working weeks, part-time work or job sharing are also options if you are in a position to or have demands outside of work that require you to reduce your hours.


因为平衡对每个人而言各不相同,因此没有量身订造的解决方案。最后,灵活的工作政策可以提高你的工作生活平衡。因此请决定最适合自己的方法,并与你的雇主讨论可行的选择。


There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach as the balance is different for everyone. Ultimately, flexible working policies can improve your work-life balance so decide what suits you best and talk to your employer about what options are available.
