Remember that work life balance is not just about your rota or wellbeing ‘activities’. Balance comes from the small things too:

  • Taking a break when offered during your shift
  • Those lighter moments during work when everyone breaks out in laughter
  • Taking a new route on your commute
  • Enjoying a cup of tea or coffee in silence on your day off
  • A phone call to a friend you have not connected with recently

In a demanding profession like ours, stealing those small moments when and where you can will make all the difference.
