9 Work Life Balance Tips for Busy Parents

 

Whether you are back at work because you are trying to have a career or you had to go back because of financial reasons, you will definitely agree with me that work life balance is not a simple task. Even if you are a mom (or dad) working from home, like me, you will often feel that you just can’t handle everything. Work and family life just keep interfering with each other and it just seems like you can’t get the balance you want. Well, I guess that is just a modern motherhood.

Work Life Balance tips

What was really surprising for me is that only 13 percent of moms feels guilty because they work. I thought the number would be much higher since I’ve heard from lots of friends that they feel like a bad mothers because they are going back to work after having a baby.

I work from home and I often feel judged because my daughter is going to the kindergarten. Lots of people think that she should stay at home with me. While I am working. Wow. How would that look like? I am working from home, that doesn’t mean that I am not working. Regardless, I want to get some balance in my life and this infographic just read my mind with work life balance tips!

I love all of them and I hope this will help me to find some work life balance and have more time for my daughter without being less productive on my job. Isn’t that something we are all looking for? Juggling work and kids can be a challenge for every parent, why wouldn’t we get some help? Read this, I think you will love these work life balance tips as much as I do!

    These are awesome tips! My daughter will be 2 in June, and she’s been home with me since she was born and I’ve worked from home the whole time, so I can definitely speak to the juggling act that is work-life balance! And, she’ll be starting school 2 days a week in the fall, so that should be an interesting experience for both of us. =)

      My daughter will be 2 in June too 🙂 I also worked from home but she went to the kindergarten when she was one and a half. How did you manage to work from home with her around? Amazing!!

    Dividing and conquering is always a good solution. I am lucky that I don;t have to work, so I think it’s easier for me to get things done since I am home.

    I’m not even a mom, and just working from home has been difficult getting a good work life balance. just because it’s close by and work obviously never ends.. it’s hard to get off the computer sometimes until after midnight! 😛 working on it though. great tips!

    Just from babysitting my much younger brother, I see how demanding parenthood is. I can’t imagine working on top of it, but it’s a necessity for most families.

  • Reply Jaime Nicole May 23, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    Love the family calendar and the idea of giving up on making everything perfect all of the time! I think letting go of perfection is the hardest thing to do!

    These are great graphics! Parenthood is not easy so having these around to remind you of tips would be so useful.

    Foremost, thank you for your thoughtful post! Love the infographic!

    I am actually glad that only 13% of Moms feel that guilt. I actually wish for that number to get smaller because women who try to do the best they can for their families should not be judged. We should all just support each other. Life balance is difficult, but each person’s situation is different that I often feel there is no specific formula that is right. We just do our best in each situation and foster support from our community of women.
