Many studies have shown the importance of healthy work and private life to bring overall life satisfaction and sustainable well-being to people.

Create a schedule
Line up your day carefully, with set office hours.

Life Integration > Work-life balance – Stop chasing work-life balance because there are more chances that you are never going to get it as your life and work are interconnected. In other words, there are higher chances that your personal life will impact your work life and vice versa. Try to focus on the more holistic approach called work-life integration which means focusing on how your work-life is integrated into your overall life.
Create better boundaries
Never put your complete quality of life in the hands of the company you are working for. If you don’t decide your limitations and schedule, your company will decide it for you and you might not like it
