Let it Go! Why Work & Life Balance Is Really an Average! by Holly Budde
We are all working moms! It doesn't matter if you are a stay-at-home mom or work-outside-of-the-home mom. I have never met a mother who wasn't working overtime. We have all also heard the long over-used phrase, work-life balance. It has been held as some iconic, perfectionist state of being for decades. Well, as I have learned, balance is actually an average!
The best thing we can do to achieve a high average is take care of ourselves. Start small and as you gain more control of yourself, it'll get easier. (I am pretty good at it after a few years). I also owe a great deal to the girlfriend who pointed this out to me. Promise yourself you'll make time for only you (even for five minutes) and QUIT multitasking 18 hours a day!
Take a breath and live. Your kids need YOU.
