Since we are not able to meet in person for the remainder of 2020, the eMHIMA Board of Directors have created an online event for your convenience.
- Effective People Skills in Healthcare
- Face Masks at Work, Six Feet Distancing, and the Home Life-Remote
- Work Balance: Tips for Making the Changed Work Environment More Productive and Less Stressful
- Leadership Influence in a COVID-19 Modified Work Environment
Our work lives have become a 24 hour round the clock job. We are expected to be fully present, “on-call,” both online and offline, nearly all the time. Knowing how to maintain balance between our work lives, home lives, volunteer jobs, and for some, church lives, can result in peace of mind, job satisfaction, financial stability, and finding joy in living, day in, day out.
Pay attention to how you handle the first two minutes of your early waking hours. It’s about working smarter, not harder. Spend more time preparing, less time repairing. Learn how to say “no.” Learn the art of running your smart phone, so that your smart phone does not run you. Delegate. Write down your goals- the night before. It’s not compiling, but completing tasks that will help you to manage your activities. Make physical exercise a priority. Introduce meditation into your daily routine. Unplug.
Yes, work-life balance is an art, that any one can master.
