An Easy Way to Remember the 4 Pillars of Improving Your Work Life Balance

  1. Self-awareness
  2. Self-management
  3. Social awareness
  4. Relationship management
Hold up two peace signs to help you remember the 4 skill sets
  1. Self-Awareness: How am I feeling in this situation?
  2. Self-management: What can I do right now or very soon to center myself?
  3. Social Awareness: How are others around me acting?
  4. Relationship Management: What can I do right now or very soon to bring the relationship(s) with those in front of me right now into more harmony?
  1. Set recurring alarms on your phone for each segment of your day.
  2. Put recurring reminders on your electronic calendar for each segment of the day.
  3. Use a Self-Awareness app such as CheckingIn and turn on notifications at specific times during the day. The CheckingIn app is free to use but there is a paid upgrade option for greater analytics.
