Article Body:
One of the serious risks of a sever poor work life balance routine is the
risk of burnout, burnout is something that can be experienced without
relation to work life management, and is also related to the work load
and working environment stress. There is no doubt that better work life
harmony will decrease the chances of a burnout and will provide a mental
safety net for anyone juggling between a demanding job and a family life.

Most of the adults in our world are expected to have a family and
maintain a regular family life, with the proper time invested in quality
time with the children and some time with the significant other to
support a healthy family life, adults are also expected to work and
contribute to the financial status of the family, maintaining a career
and working in a business on a daily basis.

When both partners work every day, the mental cost of making the
necessary adjustments and compromises in terms of work is very important,
most of the compromises first claim the free and quality time that is
devoted to the family life and immediately after that they turn to the
career or business needs. when someone is having a hard month it usually
means that something in the home environment needed more attention than
usual and that created a work load in the business, once the individual
got back to work he finds that the work load is impossible to deal with,
and he can try and get as much as possible done in the shortest time,
usually meaning he will need to work nights, and spend every waking
minute trying to close the gap.

This stressful situation usually results in a burnout. Avoiding reaching
a burnout is not as difficult as it seems, work life balance has a lot to
do with time management and life management, once you decide you will
manage your time and you life better, it will be easier to maintain the
work life balance you are looking for.
The first thing is to admit you can not close the gap and that you need
help, or at least the understanding of you business partner or
supervisor, almost everyone can understand that a family sometimes deals
with extraordinary situations, and that sometimes things go not as
planned, ask for a few minutes talk and explain that this situation has
led to a overwhelming work load and that you will not be able to finish
all of it in the near future, you can even ask for advice on how to work
efficiently.

The other things you can do is focus on yourself for a couple of days,
keep working and do your home related tasks as usual, just try and keep
some kind of track on how you are feeling and if you finish your day
feeling exhausted and without any energy. If you notice that day after
day you feel drained you should draw conclusions, talk with your partner
about decreasing your task load and consider changing your job hours or
even trying to find a work that you can manage better in your life.
