example, may help you to free up time in the long run but if it is going to cost you many thousands ofdollars to purchase, install and train others in its use (busting your budget in the process), it may not beworth it in the short-term.The key is to be honest with yourself and your accounts department. When weighing up whether toadopt new technology, ask yourself how desperately you need the technology. Can you cope without itfor the time-being?It is also important to do your research. Read trade journals, magazines and blogs for information onworkplace technology and make sure you know what exactly it is you want to buy, why and how much itwill cost. A failure to conduct sufficient research could result in a big loss for your organisation. Youmight, for instance, invest in a particular technology only to then find its use is limited or that a new,cheaper and more effective model is about to be launched on the market.

P a g e|262.3Maintain appropriate work-life balance, and ensure stress is effectivelymanaged and health is attended toBy the end of this chapter, the learner should be able to:Explain why it is important to maintain a healthy work-life balance and to managestress effectivelyList five tips for taking good care of yourselfList three ways of finding additional support.Maintaining appropriate work-life balanceWhen you think about the various threats to achieving work success, one of the last threats you’re likelyto think of is stress and an uneven work-life balance. But such threats are serious and very real.According to the Australian Psychological Society, 35% of Australians in 2015 reported experiencing asignificant level of stress in their lives, 26% reported experiencing moderate to severe levels ofdepression, and 26% reported above-normal levels of anxiety. In fact, reports of anxiety symptoms in2015 were the highest they have been in five years.While these figures appear to show that the majority of people have managed to strike a healthy work-life balance, the minority who are experiencing difficulty is sizeable, and it is inevitable that thesedifficulties will in some way be impacting work performance.It is, therefore, vital to maintain a healthy work-life balance and to manage stress effectively and toattend to your overall physical health. You should also encourage your team to do the same.This is all essentially about self-care, which is something we all do. It is about the choices we make everyday, like brushing our teeth, eating healthily and exercising, as well as how we cope with states ofwellbeing, such as stress, anxiety or illness.It is important to look after yourself because otherwise you will begin to feel tired and run-down andyour personal and professional life will suffer.
