You love your job and you’re grateful that you found a fantastic position in your field. But at the same time, it feels as if your relationship takes a backseat to your job. This can cause problems in the relationship. But fortunately, there are simple ways to balance your career with your love life.
1. Set Boundaries at Work
Some jobs are extremely demanding. You might be on call at night, or you might have to bring work home. But even if your job takes a lot of your time and energy, it's okay to set boundaries. Your relationship and personal life should be a priority. Therefore, speak with your boss and colleagues to strike a doable balance. For example, you might avoid answering work emails or phone calls after a certain time, perhaps 7 PM. Also, you can talk to your boss about limiting the amount of overtime you work.
