WORK-LIFE BALANCE: BEST PRACTICES
Today, our lifestyles have become extremely intense considering the increasing levels of stress, the ever-growing commute time due to traffic jams and extended working hours. Personal interests, hobbies, family time have started to take a hit. Eventually, it results in health issues which must be kept in check at all times. This can surely be avoided through a bit of planning and iteration in your daily schedules. In this blog, we will suggest a few things which you can do to ensure ‘work-life balance’.
Here are a few ways in which you can bring about the required change in your lifestyle –
When you are in a 9 to 6 job, 5 days a week, life tends to get stressful, bringing down your energy and fitness levels. Especially, when you have to deal with traffic jams on a daily basis. Therefore, it’s a must to incorporate fitness in your routine. Be it a daily walk or jog for 15 minutes, or hitting the gym for a quick cardio workout or be it 5 minutes of deep meditation.
Most apartment complexes now come equipped with a clubhouse, a swimming pool, and a few outdoor courts.All residential projects of Puravankara come loaded with world-class amenities. For e.g. Purva Westend located on Hosur main road in Bangalore is themed around sports, art and cinema. It has amenities like a jamming room, a ballet room, a fully-equipped gym and much more.
So, what’s your excuse not to stay fit?
Staying closer to your workplace:
Work-life balance is an underestimated subject and yet most discussed across corporates. How does one achieve work-life balance? The answer is quite simple. By staying not more than 15 minutes from your workplace. You can be more productive through the day by reducing your commute time, save on your energy levels and to unwind. Imagine hopping in a movie theatre (5 mins by walk) to catch the latest flick on a Monday evening! It’s all about utilising and planning your time efficiently.
At Puravankara, our efforts are focused towards developing projects around an already existing socio-cultural eco system.

Work-life balance can be surely achieved by staying closer to your office and rationalising your day-to-day lifestyle.
We live in an environment of 24×7 connectivity. Literally, the world is not sleeping anymore. Technology has certainly brought about a dramatic change in how to communicate, consume content and extrapolate on a daily basis. It is undoubtedly a boon, but it has its flip side as well. You are constantly checking for updates on your smart devices, consuming all kinds of content which may not be useful for you and a sheer waste of time. We suggest, you try this – every Sunday, simply UNPLUG! Not for an hour but for the day. Try it once and see it for yourself. Unwind at the swimming pool with your family in your apartment complex without worrying on what’s happening on Instagram (you’ll have a better InstaStory to post on a Monday). Voila! At the cost of sounding impractical, this practice will give you a feeling of being liberated in more than one way.
Take up a hobby
Never been in a school band? Basketball wasn’t for you? Alright, cooking might just be the thing. You heard it right. Give it a shot. Burn that toast, break a few eggs, spill the milk. You’ll get there soon than later. Researches have proved that cooking can be so therapeutic that it can calm you down while you’re at it, trying to cook up a storm. A fully loaded kitchen in your apartment with equipment that you can use is a blessing. Who doesn’t love food and a dish you’ve cooked makes it all the more delicious? So, take your pick and try something new. It’s the best way to discover yourself and your loved ones will surely be surprised.
Make it happen. Work-life balance has its own advantages and no downsides. The air we breathe, the food we eat and how well we sleep make all the difference you need to alter your life for the betterment and well-being.
Live in an apartment which offers you the best of amenities, space and a place you can call home. Always choose ‘A Puravankara Home’.
