Finding Sensible Ways to Balance Work and Home

Finding Sensible Ways to Balance Work and Home

I spend a lot of time looking for sensible ways to balance work and home. Sometimes I think my life would be better if I found a way to get more done each day at work. At other times, I think my life would be improved if I spent more time doing activities to make my home life better. There have been occasions when I thought the secret to successful living could be found in the loving embrace of my husband and children.

I even admit I experimented with ways to make each day 28 hours instead of 24 in my part of the world. But, alas and behold, none of these solutions turned out to be feasible. I think the truth of the matter is that the most sensible approach to getting done, what needs doing is to admit sometimes work sucks, but it has to be done.

I need a sensible way to balance work and home because my days are overfull of people to love and things to do.

It is not easy to balance work and home. Living in the age of Covid seems to make it even harder. Many people are working at home instead of in office buildings. When you work at home it is so easy to work during what should be off time. At the same time, it is also easy to do household chores during work hours.

It is very easy to get unbalanced at work and home. If you are one of those people working at home now, how many times have you started work before or stayed at work after your scheduled hours? On the other side, have you ever done laundry or the dishes during work hours?

There is no secret way to balance work and home. The most sensible way to do it, the best way to do it, is to do what works best for you and your family. Read all the books you find on balancing work and life. Check out all the blog and magazine articles. Your friends and family members will be full of advice. However, no matter what you read or what you hear, the most sensible solution is going to be the one you pick for yourself.

So the question for you this sensational day is what sensible way do you have to balance work and home?

  1. It is amazing how many minutes we know we could save by doing things in advance, but we don't do it. I have to force myself to do more things in advance to save time in the long run.

  2. I make a sticky note with check boxes and next to each check box I write down the things that NEED to get done. I tell myself you need to do at least one item on the list. Once I finish the first task, I check it off and I get inspired to want to check off another box of completion. Anything that doesn't get done that particular day I keep it out for the next day to do, until all the boxes are checked off

  3. Oh man, I wish I knew the answer to this question! One thing I need to do is get organized. I could get so much more accomplished if I was better at organizing and planning things ahead of time. Something simple like pulling Ayva and my clothes out for the week would probably take 10 minutes, but searching and digging for clothes every morning takes about 10 minutes each day. That's 40 minutes I could be saving right there!
