Work-Life Wellbeing Balance


With today being World Mental Health Day, Abode2 shares some top tips for looking after your mental wellbeing within the modern way of working

The way we work has changed, many employees around the world have now settled into the rhythms of hybrid or fully remote work. For some, the blurring of boundaries between home and work has caused stress, anxiety and uncertainty, as well as larger workloads. Indeed, recent data shows that almost half of HNWI (high-net-worth individuals) (48%) have been unwell with a mental or physical illness over the last year but have not had the time to seek medical assistance. On the other hand, for some, working from home has offered significant benefits – including a better work-life balance, more flexibility and more freedom.

Here are our three top tips to help protect mental well-being when WFH?

Focus on the ‘work-life’ balance you want

In the modern world, there’s greater attention on our physical and emotional wellbeing. A recent study found that two-thirds (67%) of HNWIs have been encouraged to prioritise their wellbeing – and it’s likely this trend will continue for the long-term.

Dr Robin Clark says, “This is important for protecting wellbeing and mental health. We also believe that individuals, families and employers must be committed to talking openly about concerns, and to seeking help early.”

Protect your time

It’s crucial to re-evaluate your schedule as routines change and diaries fill up. “Ensure you are building downtime as well as social and work activities into your schedule,” says Dr Clark.

It's also important to avoid slipping back into some bad habits and routines that may cause professional or personal burnout. Embrace the additional control over how your day is divided.

Get professional help when you need it

Stigmas around mental health conditions can lead to delays in getting treatment. However, early diagnosis can have a positive impact on the long-term prognosis.

Dr Clark concludes: “Mental health is just as important as physical health and the days of stigma attached to mental health have very much melted away. With a number of charities and celebrity-backed campaigns, we are all more aware of our own and others, there are so many routes to find any help you feel you need”
