It is essential to create a perfect balance between personal and professional life. If personal life is not given much importance, our relationships suffer. If professional life is not taken care of, our career suffers. Thus, we need to prepare a time table and stick to it as strictly as possible. Time should be allotted for everything important in our life. A to-do list does not only means the list of all the works related to our professional life. It also means the time that we will be spending with our family, friends and near and dear ones.

At the end of the day spending some quality time with family relaxes an individual and also strengthens the bonds. Weekends can be planned to spend with extended family members, friends and relatives. In this way, one has to well plan everything so that a perfect balance helps us to smoothly carry on our lives.
