I feel like quite a juggler! Its hard to keep balancing work / life and striking the right balance every day, day after day! Just when you think you?ve got it right, someone else points out that you haven?t! Or something goes drastically wrong, and you are left wondering again?
Time Management is the most critical factor when it comes to work / life balance. It?s important to define your own ?mantra? to stay in balance everyday. After all one has to strike the right balance, be it at work, at home, with the family or even with friends.
Funnily, I never thought about work / life balance in my life until recently. For a long time now, my life has been all about work from the time I wake up till I go to sleep. I enjoy work so treating it as my life was never a problem. But this changed, as soon as my little bundle of joy arrived! Without realizing, I became a master juggler. And what followed thereafter was a sense of dissatisfaction. I somehow felt I wasn?t doing justice either to my work or my daughter. Not to mention the brooding husband and in laws.
I realized this when a friend pointed out how stressed out I was looking. That is when I took a conscious decision to prioritize. Since then things have been a bit better. But I really would love to hear from all of you out there, how you cope. I?m sure there are lots of women out there who are facing the same problem as me. Can we network and exchange ideas on how to strike the right chord when it comes to work / life balance?
