Often, the hours your workplace demands from your day interfere with your personal life to a point where you might feel like you never have any free time.
Asking your boss for flexible hours could be extremely beneficial to reducing your stress levels and balancing your work with things that you want to do in your free time.
Start by asking your boss if they would be open to flexible hours. That might mean working from home partially or working different hours from the usual 8-5 timeline.
Don’t demand it from them, as that’ll only make them feel disrespected and possibly decrease your chances of getting what you want.
Many companies would be open to it, but very few employees think to ask out of fear that their boss could get mad. You might even be able to work from home full time.
See if there’s any option to do your work from home on a computer, and ask your boss if they would be okay with letting you do that.
Approach them with a plan in place for productivity and even offer a trial run of the situation to prove yourself.
This will free up so much extra time, letting you engage in other activities in your personal life.
If you ask for fewer hours, make sure that you get everything done within the shorter time period that you’re asking for.
Completing all of your tasks for the day while having less hours will prove your efficiency and dedication to work to your boss, making them trust you with having a shorter shift and possibly even consider allowing you to do all of your work from online if they weren’t okay with it before.
If you succeed in getting the flex time, think about what you need to feel fulfilled and have the determination to pursue it.
You might feel like you need to spend more time with your family, travel more, or take care of your health.
No matter what it is, you need to make sure that you take advantage of the free time that you get, because your boss could need you back at work at any moment and you might lose the opportunity to go back to having more free time.
Spending too much time at work could take away from your personal life and make you feel like you’re missing out on opportunities to do things you’ve always wanted to do.
Asking for flexible hours could be a solution to your problem, as long as you get all of your work done and utilize your free time to accomplish your personal goals.

"You are a life Saver!!
I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.
I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty
magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that
habit with coming here.
In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
