Work Life Balance Tips

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!

  1. Love this! We take it a step further and actually put our kids in the clothes they will wear to school the next day right before they go to bed. It’s amazing what this little thing does in terms of being a time saver in the morning.

  2. My kids are grown – but I was a working mom – you give such practical wonderful tips! You are going to help a lot of women who struggle with managing time and “surviving” trying to multi-task! Blessings

  3. 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. =)

  4. 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!!

  5. 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.

  6. This is great information! I know as a busy mom and business woman it’s so hard to balance everything out and keeping up with everything!

  7. I struggle so much with leaving work at work, because I work from home. These are all excellent tips–can’t wait to try them out!

  8. this is absolutly amazing post. I still dot have kids but i love to read posts like this to have soe more info.One tommorow when i will have faily they are going t be usefull definatly

  9. That infographic is full of great tips. I really need to get better at the work/life balance because I feel like I spend all my time working and not enough time with my son.

  10. I love this infographic! It is so important (though easier said than done sometimes) to be organized. It makes life so much less stressful. Pinning this for later!

  11. This is a really helpful graphic. It can be hard to split your focus, especially when things in our kids’ lives are constantly changing.

  12. This is a great infographic! Dividing and conquering duties is a big one in our house and helps to keep us all on track and relatively sane 🙂

  13. What a great infographic. I know for me I don’t get near enough sleep during the week. It is always go, go, go until I finally crash and then start all over again.

  14. 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!

  15. These are such great tips! I will share this with my sister!! I love the info-graphic too!! Awesome post and very informative!

  16. I really need to take some time out for me. I’ve been so busy with the kids that I forget many things. Helpful post!

  17. I definitely need to plan our meals. We eat unhealthy junk simply because it’s fast and easy. I love this infographic.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
