Work-Life Balance is Dead | Here is why we should aim for work-life integration instead
Once upon a time, work took place outside of the home during designated hours. Today, that world is a fairy tale. If you checked your work email this past weekend, you’re likely aware that at most companies there is an unspoken expectation that employees tend to emails at all hours. Ron Friedman, Ph.D. is a social psychologist specializing in human motivation Source: PsychologyToday.com It would be easy to blame heartless managers or short-sighted CEOs for the collapsing boundaries between work and life. But the causes of this cultural shift are far more complex. As human beings, we thrive on feeling needed. Neurologically, certain elements of work can be addictive. Studies have found that satisfying curiosity about a novel event (say, a new and unread email sitting in your inbox) releases dopamine in the brain, which conditions us to check again and again. Despite the monumental shift in the accessibility of work, organizations continue to offer employees the same advice they did before the invention of the BlackBerry: Seek work/life balance. The idea holds inherent appeal. Too bad it’s a myth. For many of us, compartmentalizing our work and personal life is simply not possible, and not just because of the ubiquity of email. In a growing number of companies, work now involves collaborating with colleagues in different time zones, making the start and end of the workday a moving target. And even within organizations with more traditional hours, let’s face it – standout employees are always working, even when they’re not attending conference calls or corresponding over email. They’re continuously plotting ahead and thinking up new ideas while showering, driving their kids to gymnastics, or drifting off to sleep. Until we come to terms with the fact that separating work from home is a fantasy, we can’t begin to have an intelligent conversation about what it means to create thriving organizations. We can bemoan the blending of our professional and personal lives, or alternatively, we can look for innovative solutions. For the past decade I have been studying the science of human motivation, paying particular attention to how people can work more effectively. Over the course of reviewing thousands of academic articles for my book, I have repeatedly encountered a striking gap between the latest science and the realities of the modern workplace. Take, for example, the degree of control employees at your company possess over when and where they work. We tend to assume that granting workers too much leeway will lead to reduced effort; that employees will take advantage unless they are closely supervised. Yet studies have repeatedly found that the opposite is true. Providing employees with more control over their schedule: motivates them to work harder, produce higher-quality work, and develop greater loyalty for their company. Why is this the case? Placing employees in control of their schedules encourages them to work during hours when they are most effective, instead of requiring them to sit comatose in front of a computer because it’s not yet 5 p.m. Most adults function best in the first few hours after waking. Others are sharper in the afternoon. Flexible work schedules allow employees in both camps to leverage their best hours instead of conforming to an artificial eight-hour “shift” – one that was originally designed to maximize the productivity of a factory, not human beings. Studies also show that employees with flexible schedules work more intensely. It’s because as humans, we are motivated by a norm of reciprocity. When a manager grants us the freedom of a flexible schedule, we seek to “repay” that benefit by investing greater effort. Productivity aside, flexible working offers another crucial benefit: it allows employees to resolve critical personal matters when needed, so that they can bring sharper focus and clarity to their work No wonder workplace flexibility has been linked with a host of positive well-being outcomes, including higher job satisfaction, lower stress, and reduced work-family conflict. We live in a world in which it is acceptable for work to interrupt personal time. And yet we’re not as comfortable when personal time interrupts work. Why? When organizations provide employees with a clear set of goals and entrust them to manage their time responsibly, making it acceptable for a worker to take an hour during the day to attend a yoga class or welcome his or her child off the afternoon school bus, they generate commitment that ends up saving them money in the long term. Case Study – Patagonia an outdoor clothing manufacturer Employees at the company’s HQ’s are empowered to set their own hours, given access to an on-site daycare and invited to take regular breaks during the day for exercise. Company restrooms even include private showers, transforming the prospect of an afternoon jog from an aspiration fantasy into a practical option. The result? Over the past five years, Patagonia’s profits have tripled, while employee turnover has dropped to a fraction of the industry average. Instead of endorsing the work-life balance myth, organizations are far better off empowering employees to integrate work and life, in ways that position them to succeed at both. Ultimately, it is companies that are quickest to realize that it is in their financial interests to care for the entire employee – not just the sliver of them that sits in the office for 40 hours a week – that stand to gain the greatest benefits in the form of stronger loyalty, higher engagement, and top performance.
5 Tips For Reducing Your Work Stress in 2020 (by yourself)
You feel the need to commit that 2020 is the year you stress less about work? That the demanding deadlines, long hours, and email notifications will not get you down? It’s a great goal, and one you likely have in common with a lot of people; a survey by the American Psychological Association revealed that 61 percent of respondents found work to be a source of stress. Source But resolutions are best kept with a plan of action in your inbox, so we reached out to experts for tips on tackling work-related tension this year. A) Use Breaks Strategically If stress is getting the best of you during your daily 09:00 to 17:00, Kaplan suggested using your breaks strategically. Instead of eating your lunch at your desk, perhaps switch up your environment and take a walk outside to grab a bite, call a friend, read a chapter of a book, or even practice some deep breathing exercises “Breaks are important, so anything you can do to give your mind a break during your breaks can help the rest of the work day seem more manageable,” Kaplan said. The crucial thing to remember: avoid staying at your desk and try not to check your email during your break. B) Remember What You Enjoy About Work Perhaps you hate Excel spreadsheets — the tension headaches are your consistent clue. But what about work do you love . . . or at least like? Take some time to reflect on that question. Often when people are bogged down by stress at work it’s hard to remember what you actually enjoy about your job, Amy Kaplan, LCSW and a psychotherapist with PlushCare, said. “Write down things that you like about your job, and then ways you can augment these positive things during your day.” Can’t think of anything you truly like about your job? Kaplan suggested thinking about whether a new job would be possible for you, and if so, making a plan for that change. C) Reflect on Your Work Stress It’s easy to get lost in a flurry of stress. To address what’s causing your tension, Dr. Sherry Benton, the founder and chief science officer at TAO Connect, suggested taking a step back from it all and reflecting on the specific cause of your work stress. Is your cube mate’s attitude getting the best of you? Do you have enough time to complete your projects? Is it simply all your unread emails? Once you identify the source of your stress, ask yourself some of these questions: what am I telling myself about the situation? Are my thoughts proportional to what’s really happening, or are my thoughts exaggerating the situation? Is there anything about the situation I can change? What is actually within my control and what isn’t? said Dr. Benton. And by answering these questions, Dr. Benton said you’ll be better able to modify the thoughts causing your stress. D) Stop Taking Work Stress Home Leaving work stress at work is harder than it sounds, but Kaplan said that rearranging your end-of-day routine could help. “Before you go home, tie up whatever loose ends you can and double check your schedule for the next day before walking out the door,” she said. Then, as you’re on your way home from work, get your mind off of work projects. Kaplan suggested listening to music or calling a friend to catch up. Another option is fitting in another activity before heading home — go to the gym or schedule a regular meeting with friends. This way, you’ll be in a better head space before stepping into your home. You’ll want to actually leave your assignments at work, too. “Designate ‘protected time’ for friends, family, and fun offline activities when you don’t have to think about work,” Kaplan said. If you are not on call and your job doesn’t depend on it, wait to return after-hours work emails and calls until you are scheduled back at work. If you get in the habit of returning work calls or emails when you are off, that will become the expectation from your coworkers and it will make it more difficult for you to keep work stress from creeping home. E) Utilize Stress-Reducing Tools Boost your efforts by incorporating stress-reducing activities into your daily routine. Dr. Benton suggested practicing mindfulness meditation to reduce your stress levels, as well as adding exercise to your fitness routine — outdoor exercise is particularly helpful, but even a walk can help. Related Article by WorkWell: 12 Best Health & Management Apps for 2019 Aerobic exercise is one of the best types of exercise for reducing stress because the high-intensity output reduces the body’s stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, while producing endorphins, she said. Journaling is also another activity to consider making a habit. “When you write down your thoughts and see them on paper, you can better recognize what’s exaggerated or overly critical,” Dr. Benton noted. “From there, you can try modifying your thoughts to be more realistic and less exaggerated.” Not sure how to get started? Dr. Benton suggested making a list of three things to be thankful for every day. “They can be anything. Maybe you’re grateful for the person that held the door open for you or for the person that made your coffee,” she said. “When you find things to be thankful for and make a list, you’re changing the neural connections in your brain and offsetting stressful thoughts with an increased amount of positive and affirming thoughts.
Two forms of exercise to keep your brain young
Exercise is the closest thing to a miracle drug that we have, according to a growing body of research. When it comes to keeping the brain young and staving off the effects of aging, two types of workouts appear to be the best: cardio and strength training. A new review of nearly 100 well-designed studies found positive cognitive effects were linked with activities like walking, cycling, and yoga when people did them for an hour three times a week. Source: Business Insider Exercise is the closest thing to a miracle drug that we have. Whether it’s a mood boost, better muscle tone, or a sharper mind you’re looking for, two types of workouts are the easiest means of accomplishing those goals. Aerobic exercise, or cardio, is the type of workout that gets your heart pumping and sweat flowing, while strength training helps keep aging muscles from weakening over time. As far as how much exercise you should get to reap benefits for your brain, a new review of nearly 100 studies published in the journal Neurology: Clinical Practice found that older folks who got roughly an hour of exercise three times a week showed significant cognitive advantages compared with people who did less exercise or none at all. Those benefits included better processing speed and superior performance on tests that measure skills like time management and the ability to pay attention. “This is evidence that you can actually turn back the clock of aging in your brain by adopting a regular exercise regimen,” Joyce Gomes-Osman, a rehabilitation scientist at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine who led the study, told MedPage Today. Turning back the clock of aging Healthy brains appear to rely on frequent movement. Several recent studies have connected regular exercise with a reduced risk of dementia, stronger brain connections in key memory centers, and better performance on a battery of cognitive tests. For the most recent review, scientists were trying to pin down what the optimal “dose” of exercise would look like to get some of these cognitive benefits. They looked at 98 randomized controlled trials that together included a total of more than 11,000 older people with an average age of 73. More than half of those participants didn’t exercise regularly before being enrolled in one of the studies. Then the researchers analyzed the details of the participants’ workouts, capturing information on things like how often they hit the gym, the intensity of the workouts, and the length of time they committed to an exercise plan. Walking was the most popular type of cardio workout that people engaged in, but others did cycling, dancing, strength training, and mind-body workouts like tai chi or yoga. Previous research has hinted that the magic starts to happen with 45-minute workouts. But a growing body of evidence suggests that the time you spend on a single workout matters less than the total time you spend at the gym over long periods. That means whether your latest workout was five or 50 minutes is less important than whether you hit the track or pool regularly — at least several times a week. The review found that the most effective dose of exercise — the average amount that appeared to be linked with specific positive outcomes for the brain — was roughly 52 hours over six months. The scientists saw a significant link between this amount of exercise and people’s performance on tests measuring two key outcomes related to thinking skills: attention span, and the amount of time it took people to complete a mental task. Though that breaks down to, on average, about 40 minutes of exercise three times a week, it could take other forms too. A tough three-hour bike ride could be enough meet your weekly allotment, for example, even if you didn’t do any other exercise. Another important part of the study was that the exercise the researchers looked at wasn’t limited to sweat-fests like power cycling classes or heated yoga — moderate-level workouts like walking and gentle swimming were included as well. “We were excited to see that even people who participated in lower-intensity exercise programs showed a benefit to their thinking skills,” Gomes-Osman said in a statement. “Not everyone has the endurance or motivation to start a moderately intense exercise program, but everyone can benefit even from a less intense plan.”
