How to Balance Work and Family

How to Balance Work and Family
Time Management

Good time management is one of our most valuable resources. Individuals need to learn how to manage their time so that they can complete tasks and leave work on time. Life balance means learning how to distribute your time and energy throughout several different areas in your life. The way each person chooses to balance work and family will differ from person to person; however the importance of doing so is the same for everyone. The following suggestions can help improve your use of time…

  1. Make a “to do” list
  2. Rank the things that need to be done first- in other words, prioritize tasks and activities
  3. Break big tasks into smaller ones
  4. Do small tasks first and save big tasks for when you have the most energy (this sets you up for success and increases confidence and motivation)
  5. Plan some catch-up time at work so that if something unexpected happens, you’ll have time to deal with it
  6. Once home, do two things at once (i.e. fold laundry while watching t.v.)
  7. Delegate tasks that are easier, take less time or are less urgent (i.e. to children, spouse or co-workers)
  8. Don’t expect everything to be done perfectly
