It can be hard to strike a balance between work and family life, especially when your business is your top priority. Juggling a successful career with raising children (or taking care of elderly parents) often feels like an impossible task. But it’s not impossible! With a bit of organization and planning, you can keep your mom’s duties afloat while still maintaining a thriving business. In this blog post, we will share 14 tips that will help you achieve just that!

Get Organized

The first step to successfully balancing work and family life is to get organized. Make a list of all the things you need to do for your business, and then make a separate list for your mom’s duties. Once you have everything written down, you can start to prioritize and plan accordingly.

Outsourcing

If you find that you don’t have enough time in the day to complete both lists, try outsourcing some of the tasks on your business list. This will free up some time so that you can focus on your family.

Online Tools and Resources

There are also many helpful tools and resources available online that can help you stay organized. One great option is Google Calendar – it’s free and easy to use, and it can help you keep track of both your work and family commitments.

Dedicated Time

Another helpful tip is to set aside specific times for each task. For example, you could dedicate an hour or two to work every day, and then the rest of your time can be devoted to your family. This will help you to focus and make the most of your time.

Not Everything Will Go to Plan – That’s Okay!

Of course, there will be days when things don’t go according to plan. And that’s okay! The important thing is to not get too stressed out or overwhelmed – remember that you’re doing the best you can, and that’s all that matters.

Communicate With Your Family

It’s important to communicate with your family about your work and business commitments. This way, they will be aware of what you’re working on and how much time you’ll need to dedicate to it.

If you have young children, you could set up a “workstation” in your home so that they know not to disturb you during certain times of the day. For older kids, you could explain your work schedule and why it’s important for you to focus during those times.

Regular Family Meetings

It’s also a good idea to have regular family meetings (perhaps once a week) where everyone can share what they’re working on and any concerns they might have. This is a great opportunity for everyone to stay updated and on the same page. And of course, if there are ever any changes to your work schedule or commitments, be sure to communicate those with your family as soon as possible. The key is to be open and honest with your family about your work-life – this will help everyone to understand and respect each other’s needs and boundaries.

Set boundaries

It’s important to set boundaries between your work life and your family life. This will help you to avoid burnout and maintain a healthy balance.

Work-free Zone

One way to do this is to create a “work-free zone” in your home. This could be a specific room that you use for work, or it could be a rule that work must stay in the office and not be brought into the house.

Limiting Working Hours

Another boundary you might want to set is limiting work hours. Once you’ve finished working for the day, make sure to shut off your computer and put away any work materials. This will help you to relax and enjoy your time with family or friends.

Set Boundaries for Yourself

It’s also important to set boundaries with yourself – don’t be afraid to say no to work commitments that will intrude on your personal time. Your family should always come first, and your business will still be there when you’re ready to focus on it again. Remember, it’s okay to set boundaries – in fact, it’s necessary! By doing so, you’ll be able to give both your work and your family the attention they deserve.

Multitasking Both Lives

Of course, there will be times when you have to juggle both your work and family commitments. And that’s okay! The important thing is to not try to do everything at once – focus on one thing at a time, and you’ll be able to get through it all.

One Task at a Time

Whenever possible, try to focus on one task at a time. This will help you to avoid feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. If you need to take a break from work, make sure to give yourself some time to relax and rejuvenate.

Find Tasks That You Can Do While Doing the Other

There are certain tasks that you can do while still attending to your family. For example, if you’re working on a project, try to find tasks that can be done while your children are napping or occupied with something else. And if you’re spending time with your family, see if there are any tasks that you can do in the background (such as checking emails or making phone calls). You can also put on a load of washing before your next Skype meeting, and then it will be done when you’re finished. Or start using your good old slow cooker more often so that you can prepare dinner in the morning, and then it will be ready by the time you’re done with work. This crockpot chili Verde by The Magical Slow Cooker is one of our favorites!

By following these tips, you’ll be able to successfully juggle your work and family commitments without feeling overwhelmed or stressed out. Remember, it’s all about finding a balance that works for you – and that’s different for everyone. So take some time to figure out what works best for you, and stick to it! You’ve got this!
