Top 4 Tips To Live More Worry Less And Focus More On Your Family

Do you want to lighten your work load so you can work less live more? Me too! Here are the exact strategies to work less live more in your life.

 

Are you a working mom who feels as if she is working more and more, with no end in sight?

Are you buried so deep under a pile of work that you wonder if you’ll ever get out?

I hear you, mama!

We have ALL been there before I promise and while hard work is important to your success and financial prosperity so too is balance.

 Trust me; I have learned this from experience!

So if you’re currently feeling stressed out and overtired, you may be feeling as if proper work and family balance is impossible for you.

Yet that couldn’t be further from the truth!

Of course it is possible for you.

Not only that but balancing your work and family life is critical for preserving your health.

You need to feel calm in order to experience the peace and happiness you deserve.

 

Here’s how you can attain the balanced life you are craving with a few simple changes:

TIP # 1 – Keep the work at work.

I know it’s tempting but resist the temptation to bring work home with you.

If you’re facing pressing deadlines or a pile of work that keeps growing, taking work home seems like the easiest way to get it all done.

Unfortunately, though, taking work home often means saying no to vital family time.

Sure sometimes a heavy workload is part of the territory.

At other times, you can intentionally ease your workload by opting out of unnecessary projects or unreasonable demands.

You don’t need to say yes to everything.

  • Try delegating the tasks that can be done by others so you’re free to do the most important aspects of your job.
  • Other times, poor planning can cause you to spend more time on tasks than is really necessary. This may cause you to get behind and feel the need to bring work home.
  • Take a few minutes in the morning to plan your day effectively, make a to-do list arranged by priority, and then cross off your tasks as you complete them. A little pre-planning can work wonders.
  • Show your family that you value them by saying no when appropriate, delegating when possible, and taking time to organize your work before you begin. You’ll feel less stressed and get more done. These same rules apply even if you are a work from home mom.

    TIP # 2 – Limit your hours.

     And isn’t that the winning trifecta?

    Staying late at the office is a lot like coming home with work.

    If possible, commit to reasonable office hours and leave when it’s time to clock out.

    You aren’t obliged to stay any later than your set time.

    Honestly, your family will love and appreciate your time at the office MORE if you feel less stressed and experience greater productivity in the time you actually spend at work (so you don’t bring your frustration home with you). 

    TIP # 3 – Go to work early.

     Instead of staying at the office late and missing family time, consider arriving early if you have to catch up on work.

    While you only want to do this occasionally, it can be the perfect compromise that promotes balance in your life.

    Arrive home on time for family time, and you work extra hours in the morning when everyone’s still asleep. 

    TIP # 4 – Put your family first.

     Just as you make appointments that support your working career, why not make appointments that prioritize your family and encourage balance?

    You are in control of your calendar remember!

    Schedule in date nights, play time with the kids, or whatever suits your lifestyle.

    You absolutely need to make time for the things that are important to you, including your family.

    That way, when the calendar starts to become crowded with work, your family doesn’t get crowded out.

     

    In the end, if you are a working mom, there’s a good chance that a large proportion of your time will be spent at work.

     

    But that doesn’t mean to say that you still can’t enjoy quality time with your family.

    Most of the real memories we make in life are made in those moments were spend AWAY from the office and with our friends and families.

     

    So consider using these strategies to balance your life and create MORE of the memories that ultimately make life worthwhile.

     

    If you consistently make your family a priority, you will be rewarded with greater productivity at work, a sense of peace, and deeper relationships within your family.
