How to Achieve Work-Life Balance When Planning the Wedding
May 28, 2018
Let’s face it: planning a wedding can be really, really difficult, especially when you put a lot of pressure on yourself to make sure everything is just perfect, from A to Z. Of course, that’s normal, to want everything about the Virginia wedding you’re planning to be dreamy – but you shouldn’t allow wedding planning to interfere with your personal and professional life.
How to achieve work-life balance when planning the wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- Do wedding planning tasks in your lunch break – but ONLY if this works for you. It works for some brides, it doesn’t for others because some of you may feel that you’re left hung up on wedding planning tasks when the lunch break is over, distracting you from everything you are supposed to do for work.
- Leave your work at the door. Try, as much as possible, not to mix your professional life and your personal life – not during the wedding planning process, and not outside of it. For example, one mistake many brides to be make is leave their work email address to wedding vendors – but although that may make sense because you are easier to reach on your work email, it mixes your work duties and your wedding planning tasks too much and it can cause serious burn out.
- Leave the multitasking behind you as well. We know you feel that multitasking allows you to do multiple things at once – but that’s not necessarily true. What you are doing, actually, is extending the time needed to get each of the tasks done. Instead of focusing on the tasks one by one, you are taking all of them at once, causing yourself a lot more stress and anxiety over getting each of them done (and thus making it harder to focus).
- Manage your time better. If needed, use a time management or project management app – visualizing your tasks and organizing them can really help, no matter what kind of job you do (or what kind of wedding you are planning). Asana is a good example here (they have a free option, and it could work very well for this purpose.
