When You’re Stressed. Learn.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

learningEverybody needs help occasionally. At some point, we all get stressed out at work and feel like we can’t get everything done that we have to do.

But rather than venting about your situation or trying to trudge through the period of challenge on your own, it’s better to take on a learner’s perspective. Ask question’s and expand your perspective in order to get past your motivational block and gain more information to help you succeed.

Helping other’s is also a good method to become more motivated and get out of your head. Like breaking up soil after a cold winter, sometimes your mindset needs to be cultivated in order to grow.

The best way to do this is to help others and ask questions. Learning motivates you and makes you better as you help others. Remember this the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed.

Advice You’ve Never Heard: Work-Life Balance and Mobile Productivity

As a work-life balance speaker, I’m constantly in creative mode, wondering, “What can working adults do to be more productive at work, and at the same time, be great for their friends and family, live healthy, and basically have more fun in life?”  I scour research articles on the subjects of stress management, peak performance, time management,etc. I read blogs, newspapers, etc.  To be honest, I’m rarely find an idea I have not already heard.  However, I can say without a doubt, that this video uses a life balance strategy that I have never even considered.  Enjoy.

Balancing Your Life With Technology

Why do I bring this to you?

#1.  This video is fun, and you likely need more fun in your life.  This is great workplace humor.

#2. Never give in to overwhelm.  Never stop thinking creatively.  While this idea is over the top and meant to be funny, it does demonstrate that we’ve not thought of everything.  And, to me, that is an encouraging thought.

#3. Never take the first offer.  Ask for more in life and you will get more in life.

I Get By With a Little Help

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

Figuring out how to balance your work and home life is one thing, maintaining it is quite another. Professional speaker Andy Core talks about why having a buddy system in place makes you more likely to achieve work life balance.

These are the people who care about you and love you, but also know you enough to support and instruct with honesty. In other words, these are the people who will motivate you to be better.

  1. Friends Keep you Focused. Friends will give you that extra boost you need when you’re close to blurring the lines. Being accountable to others increases the chances that you’ll stay on track with your plans for your own work-life balance.
  2. Friends are Everywhere: That business adage of never putting all your eggs into one basket applies to buddies as well. A professional speaker knows that having workout buddies is just as important as having buddies at work. Friends can be segmented by environment. All your buddies don’t have to be your best friends. Live life by making friends everywhere you go and you’ll always enjoy where you are.
  3. Friends Keep you Fun. People with active social and work lives tend to feel more enriched about life in general. In turn, feeling good about life means you’ll probably be more productive at both work and home.

Therefore, it’s so important to prioritize your relationships to make you a better person. In my life, there are five people I talk to every week. I intentionally seek their company out because I know that they are part of my support system. Sometimes this takes work, but it’s always worth it.

Why Convention Speakers Don’t Cross the Line Between Work and Play

When the work day is over, forget about it and focus on your home life.

When the work day is over, leave the work at the office and turn your concentration to your home life.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

With the workplace more competitive than ever, it can be tempting to take your work home with you so that you’re one-step ahead of everyone else. Convention speakers like Andy Core recommend that doing this can actually hinder your chances of success, instead of helping them.

The more you blur the lines between the two, the more upset you’ll be when something goes wrong. Everybody needs distractions to keep things in perspective and cultivating both your work and home lives equally can help. When you arrive at work, make sure you’re fully prepared mentally, emotionally and physically to deal with all the challenges.

Conversely, when you leave the office, leave the issues at your desk. Your family and friends, while sympathetic to you problems, aren’t your psychiatrist and shouldn’t be treated as such. It’s good to vent to them, but make sure you’re drawing a careful line between unloading and bringing your work home.

Convention speakers say that it’s okay to work as hard as you play. There’s no reason you can’t enjoy both, but just make sure that you keep a good balance between the two. It’ll be better for you both in the short- and long-term.
