It’s important to realise there’s no such thing as a perfect work-life balance. Getting yours right doesn’t mean that everyday you’ll be able to do everything you want.
Instead, this is something you measure and improve over time. Unfortunately, some days you’ll have to work more than others. However, overall, things should equal themselves out and you should feel like you have control.
If you’re looking for a better work-life balance, try:
1. Setting your work hours… and sticking to them
2. Prioritising your time
3. Organising your workstation
4. Getting enough exercise
5. Having sufficient sleep

Take Notice- Smell the Roses
We’re often told to stop and smell the roses. When we take notice, we are giving ourselves space to become mindful, breathe and slow down. Notice a moment, and appreciate it with all your senses!
Simple things we can do to rest, switch off and recharge.
Reading, watching a movie, yoga, and deep breathing are all great ways to unwind.

If you would like more information on the support available to help you quit smoking, see your Regional Champion or visit http://www.quit.org.nz/
Every hour, day, week, month and year that you go without smoking, your health will improve.
You will feel immediate benefits when you quit as your body starts to repair itself. Quitting at any age is beneficial and not only increases life expectancy; it also improves quality of life.
