Creating a work life integration plan by Jacqueline V. Twillie

After you've assessed your values and your daily actions it's time to create a plan that will allow you to thrive in all areas of your life. The biggest part of that is finding the resources available to you by your employer. 
Examples of Resources that you should take advantage of:

  • Telework days
  • Flex schedule options 3 day weekends
  • Maternity and Paternity leave
  • Rideshare (vanpool or carpool)
  • Daycare on-site
  • Employee resource or affinity groups
  • Employer-sponsored sports leagues
  • Fitness
  • Training and development funds
  • Tuition reimbursement
 Burnout Prevention Tools
  1.  Create a routine
  2. Incorporate healthy habits into your daily routine
  3. Set boundaries
  4. Unplug 
  5. Reconnect 
  6.  Learn how to manage stress 
Creating a plan that works for you requires buy-in from your family/friends and employer. So discuss your plan with them and have a backup plan if what you want to do isn't realistic for all parties at this time. Spend time thinking about how you will adjust if things come up? It's better to have a plan before it happens so that you don't get overwhelmed and spin out of control. When you have a plan for when things get busy you can shift to that plan.
