FINDING BALANCE AT HOME: TIP NR.2
Do you find it difficult to work from home and having kids home 24/7?
You are not really prepared for that.
Finding time to work while the kids are home wanting our attention has become the ‘new normal’.
It would be so nice to have some balance.
So, what can you do to find our balance and make working from home with the kids more manageable?
Here is our second tip for that:
You just want some time to yourselves, no kids, no distractions. Is that too much to ask?
Popping to the toilet, making a much-needed cup of tea
and finding time to have something to eat is often better when you are alone.
When you are not being watched by the kids.
But they won’t leave you alone?
Is there a way?
There are many strategies and techniques that you can use to help our kids and yourselves to be more independent.
Encouraging times when the kids play independently is healthy and it will allow you to have some much needed ‘me time’.
How you choose to spend that time is up to you.
Yes, work is important but so is rest and recovery.
If you let yourselves get burnt out, you won’t be much use to anyone.
Finding a good work/ life balance is key.
