7. Manage your boundaries
Fraone said people should carve time into their schedules and make dates with themselves for nonwork items. "Taking time for yourself, your family, friends, or even taking time to volunteer -- whatever is important to you, you've got to be scheduling that into your day." Especially important, Fraone said, is the self-care aspect of managing your boundaries. "For example, if I don't get up by 5:45 a.m. to exercise, then it doesn't get done," she said. "Do I want to get up that early? No. But exercising is important to me and my health so I have to carve it in to my day."
