Is your life balanced?
Running here! Running There! Sometimes it seems like I’m running everywhere! Did you ever have one of those awful days when it seemed like you were juggling a million unending tasks? Did you start to feel crazy because there just wasn’t enough time to get everything done, let alone spend time with your loved ones, or take a little “Me” time? I used to have those days all the time, and I often despaired for want of a solution. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Although we will face many obstacles, if today's workingwomen are creative and versatile, we can create a harmonious balance between office life and home life.
The first step in achieving balance is to decide what is most important to you, and what you can let go of. Maybe the house doesn’t always have to be spotless if it means not spending time with your family. Once you have your ducks in a row, it is time to plan. Spending half an hour at the beginning of the week to create a game plan can save you tons of time over the week. Often, you will find there are errands that can be combined, or chores that can be worked on simultaneously. Remember to get the whole family involved. You are a team, and teams need to work together to achieve success. Finally, make sure to take time for yourself. Taking that extra ten minutes in the shower to simply relax can revitalize you and make all the difference to your sense of harmony and balance. After all, isn’t that what it is all about?
