Work and home balance? That’s possible? According to some experts, it is at least partially possible.
The ABC affiliate, KATU, in Portland just did this story about how working moms can have it all.
The article offers these tips:
-Be present. If you’re at work – be at work. If you’re at home – be at home.
-Assign time limits and stick to them. Do what you can at work or home and then move on.
-Combine your work and home calendars. That way you can see all of your commitments and make choices.
For me, finding the balance has been about trial and error. When my son was first born – there was no finding any balance. At this point, we have a routine that allows me to do well at work and do well with my son. Some days end, where I realize I should have paid more attention to my son and less attention to the work e-mails on my smartphone. The next day, I just try a little harder to step away from my phone.
