Balance Work and Home to Avoid Excess — 12 Comments

  1. I love how you mentioned to “be present at home and at work” sometimes it feels like home is the only place where we can switch our brains off and hide in ourself.
    It’s ok to do that sometimes but you have to balance it and make sure we aren’t economizing at home.

  2. I love using google calendar to keep track of everything. I’m finding now that I’m getting more opportunities for advancement, I need to make sure i keep that balance and not neglect my home duties in order to get that ‘one last thing” done. It’s great to be able to look at my calendar on my phone to see what time i’m “off duty.”

  3. Your husband sounds just like mine — “I don’t need a calendar, I can remember it all!” except I’m the one who has to remind him of stuff. 🙂

  4. I’m not as good with calendars as I should be. I keep a family calendar on the fridge so my husband can get idea of where we’re going and when.
    In terms of my day-to-day tasks and blog posts I roll by the seat of my pants!

  5. Calendars rule!! I have been an engaged user of a calendar system going back to my high school days. I love now that everything can be electronic and syncs instantly. Just recently, I’ve actually integrated my husband’s calendar into mine and vice versa. With the color coding and the multiple hats I wear as well, it is very easy to quickly look and see what’s on the plate for the day and strive for balance. Great post Janeane, good food for thought.

    • Thanks Cynthia. My Google calendar also syncs to Cozi family organizer. I have that setup to send my husband an email every Sunday afternoon so that he can see our family events for the week. He won’t keep a calendar!
