Its seems like work life balance is an issue with growing importance
these days, as more and more parents change the traditional family
settings and move into different working patterns, new, unfamiliar
problems in balancing work and life rise, and work life balance suddenly
becomes an important subject.

So much has changed in our work patterns in the last decade that many
people in the western world do not hold on to what was once considered
the “family values” with parents working from home, or splitting work
between an office and the home office, family duties, tasks and
activities are shifting and changing into a much more flexible and
unpredicted setting.

Work life balance is all about managing the time you got with them things
you want to do, ask every successful manager and she will tell you that
you have time enough to do everything you want to do, as long as you
prioritize and fully understand what it is that you want to do in your
day. work life balance is about setting limits and truly understanding
how much each and every detail in your daily routine is important to you
and to your goals.

Two key elements for better Work life balance are prioritizing and
delegating. Prioritizing starts by simply understanding that there is way
too many things you want to do, and that you can not fit all of them into
one day, or some time one week. Work life balance, for many of us, is
really about balancing work and family, prioritizing draws a clear
picture, sometimes its not a nice one, sometimes you need to give up a
lot of your favorite things by prioritizing, but eventually, as your work
life balance skills improve – you will benefit from this. Prioritizing is
the first step to better work life balance because it starts the process
of understanding the activities limit on a daily basis.
Delegating work is another work life balance tool, this is something you
can use to deal with growing tasks and not having enough time to manage
everything. Managing time is the same as tasks management, and both are
in fact the basics of work life management, in the daily routine everyone
can do a little something for this life balance, family life can improve
significantly by better work life balance, and that’s exactly why all the
members of a family can contribute to it.

One more thought about work life balance, if you think about it unplanned
days pass very quickly, the planned ones can move as fast as the
unplanned, but in the end of the day you feel more satisfied, and you
know what you did. Understanding the time you got available and figuring
out what you want to do with it is a great challenge, as with all life
work balance challenges, going to bed at night and realizing you have
done 90% of what you planned to do, and that your day had the structure
of work and family activities you wanted will make you feel good and
strong, some even say that it will make you sleep better at night.

Start thinking about work life balance in your life today, balancing work
and life is not so hard and it is something most of us need, you will
enjoy more quality time with your family and less personal stress if you
start thinking about your work life balance. Good luck.
