Alternate wins between work and family without skipping turns

After scoring a win at work, make it mandatory to not focus on work until you score an equally strong win at home. Make a family member happy, spend quality time with your loved ones, take your partner on a date, go camping with your child, etc.

Only when you scored a win at home, are you allowed to focus on scoring the next win at work.

And the cycle continues.

Stick to a strict schedule

This may be somewhat obvious, but it would still be an effective solution.

Sticking to a strict schedule allows you to focus on work when it's time to work, but also to put work away during the hours not allocated to work.

This has become more difficult to do since we are able to take work everywhere we go on cellphones and laptops, but imagine the routine of a tradesman like a builder. While on-site, a builder's family cannot reach or bother him/her while working, but when he/she is home, there's nothing to be done about work, so attention can then be focussed on the family. There is no reason any of us cannot approach work/family balance in the same way, the trick is to be disciplined and sticking to the allocated time slots regardless of what might be going on in your personal/professional life.

Promote personal life/work balance in the society

This balance is not always up to one person's efforts. For employees, it is not easy to maintain a good balance when there is a workaholic environment and long hours are expected. The biggest change would come if the whole society (and your boss) considered personal time as important as working time. This is the case in some countries (ex Scandinavia) which in this aspect are an exception in the Western World.
