BALANCE WORK AND YOUR FAMILY LIFE
Are you worn out trying to succeed at work while wrangling responsibilities at home? Try these ideas for creating strategies to help you balance work and family life.
Decide what you want. Think about what you really want from life for you and your family. How does your job fit into that? Are you working for self-fulfillment or merely for the paycheck?
Decide what’s important. Based on your values, figure out which tasks are absolutely essential and which are less so. Set priorities for deciding what works. If spending time with your family during your Sunday is important, consider utilizing a housecleaning service to tackle the day-to-day chores so you can focus on your family.
Transition between the two worlds. It usually takes 15-20 minutes to shift gears from work to family. Clear your head on the way home by listening to music as you commute, or try mediating or reading if you utilize public transportation. Once home, take a 15-minute break to change clothes and make the complete shift.
Be realistic. There is always more to do than time available, so figure out what you can and can’t do. You may need to adjust your expectations of both work life and your home life.
