HomeWork/LifeBalancing Home and Work is a Decision


Balancing Home and Work is a Decision — 20 Comments

  1. This is something I need to sit down and work on. I’m a bit scattered in how I balance things right now.

  2. As someone who works from home some days the balance is tough. My work load might be huge unless I have a light week. I need to find better balance.

  3. I was finding it difficult to balance both work and family when i started working from home. I started setting an alarm to remind me when to shut off my computer and stop working.

  4. Finding the ultimate balance between work and family is a challenge for everyone. And there’s no one solution fits all. Thanks for your ideas on how to find the right balance that works for you.

  5. I do want balance, but I am still working on how to achieve that- hard when we’re still growing our family, for sure. I love your reminder that balance looks different for everyone- that is so true- and we all need to remember that!

  6. oh man. work life balance is so important. i remember when i used to work for hp i was always on. it didnt matter the time and it was so bad for me.

  7. It is such a tough thing to balance work and the family. Sometimes I think working from home can make things worse because you don’t get to leave the work at your office, it’s all around you! I think coming up with a plan for hours you will be working is such an important step. It’s easy to lose track of time.

  8. As a working Mom and a blogger, I know the work/life balance all too well. I definitely need to take some steps to improve that balance ;). Thanks for sharing!

  9. Balancing time is difficult! I have to go from one to the other, housework, children,dinner, or work. There is not enough hours in the day! This is a great post!

  10. I really needed this. As a working at home mom, it’s very hard for me to balance both home and work even though I want to. My kids demand a lot of attention and rightfully so. There kids and are home all day with me. Work is demanding as well, with tight deadlines. I’ll definitely use this advice to help me get some balance.

  11. I think this can definitely be a tough one. I work from home, so it’s a bit easier for me to do both of these. I usually work most of the day time so I can have a lot of time off at night when my girls are home most of the time. That way I can get other things done around the house or help out my girls. I also usually take weekends off of working and get some housework done then.

  12. Currently, I work full-time and blog nearly full-time as well. It was a tough decision to continue blogging but it’s something that I love and so my husband and I sort out a plan for the both of us so neither of us would feel overworked or neglected. This post is really inspiring for people juggling so much at once!

  13. I am definitely still working on figuring this out. I work from home for a few days a week and even that is tough to balance at times. Thank you for the food for thought.

  14. This is still a concept that I’m trying to figure out. However, because I work from home, I feel like working while my children are napping/asleep is usually my best option.

  15. In all the years I’ve been a mom, or in the workforce, or a blogger, I’ve found one thing to be an absolute truth. Balancing work and family is probably the hardest thing anyone will ever do.

  16. It can be so hard to get balance going when you work at home. I try to stick to a schedule but have to make sure I have some wiggle room for kids stuff that comes up.

  17. I totally get it and it’s really important to find that balance! Not everyone does.

  18. I know what you mean… Having to work all morning at the office, then come home and work at my home office… Then also do my job as a mother it can be hard to do anything for me.

  19. I have given myself office hours and I rarely go over then unless I have no choice! You need to have a life outside of work, or what are you working for then? Great post!
