Sure, being a head honcho may have its perks, but it comes with a whole lot of stress as well. A recent study showed that 90 percent of top managers found that 90 percent lost sleep at night over a fear of failure. Not good. Here are a few tips to help you achieve a work/life balance that will lower your stress and keep you ready to make those big decisions for your company.

That old saw about people on their death beds never saying “I wish I’d spent more time at the office” holds true. Do fun things with the ones you love and who love you. Don’t be afraid to block out time on your calendar for your kid’s soccer match or catching up with that old friend from college. Of course, there may be family relationships that cause you to stress (insert mother-in-law joke here) but we’re not counting those.

A corollary to the first bullet, make spending time on your favorite hobby or leisure activity a regular part of your calendar. Don’t have a hobby? Get one. And if it’s something outside, physical in nature, or creative and arty, you get bonus points (and bonus benefits!) Studies have shown that exercise and creative pursuits boost your mood and raise your overall happiness level. Make sure you encourage your employees to do the same. You’ll get a cheerier, more engaged team as a result.

Hang out with colleagues

Look for opportunities to engage with peers who face the same business puzzlers you do and share tactics and strategies for solving those conundrums. A regular coffee klatch with colleagues or playing 18 holes, in addition to getting you out of the office, could provide invaluable insight into whatever current work struggles you’re dealing with.

In addition to networking, find a mentor with more experience than you and take advantage of all the wisdom they’re willing to share. And be willing to do the same for someone with less experience, as a way of giving back.

A big source of stress (and procrastination) happens when we have to do a task but don’t feel particularly good at it. So, get good at it and feel the stress dissipate. If you hate public speaking, practice it. If planning isn’t your forte, take a class or read a book on how to do it better. Or, if it’s a task that you can delegate, delegate away!
