In today’s busy world that’s filled with smartphones and distractions, it can be tough to take a true break from work. It can be even more chaotic when you’re a busy mom. You’re caring for other people in addition to meeting your own needs.

Work-Life Balance Tips

But with the right tools and attitude, it’s possible to strike a healthy work-life balance that allows you to live a better life. Here are some tips on how to do it:

Time Management

Make the most of your time by making a list of your top priorities, and then create a schedule with time allotted for everything. Maybe you have one day per week where you don’t take any meetings so you can get more done at the office. Or you could book one exercise class before you head home from work to help clear your head after a long day.

Cut back on multitasking. Instead of trying to finish four things at once, try just knocking out one at a time. Maybe this means you devote one hour each morning to checking email. Make a rule to not check email after you’ve left your desk. Decide what boundaries you want to draw and enforce them. Your work and home life will be better for it.

Make Time For Yourself

If you’re always worrying about others, it’s easy to let your own priorities fall by the wayside. If this has been happening, and you’d like to make it better, consider scheduling time for yourself into your day. [click to continue…]
