How do they do it? You know the parents that work full time and manage to raise smart, healthy and happy children?

They have a secret. That secret is maintaining a good work life balance.

Have you ever heard the expression “all work and no play makes a boring day?” Well the same goes for all play and no work.

Do too much of anything and you are bound to go stir crazy at some point or get cabin fever.

The good news for parents everywhere is that you can have the best of both worlds.

You can work hard and still find time to enjoy your family and your life. You simply need to create balance.

In fact the most successful business people are also parents. They are individuals who have discovered the secrets of balancing work and home life.

So how do you do it? You simply need to adopt a few essential strategies.

Work life balance is as simple as being able to balance the demands of work with your personal life. You can be successful and happy doing both.

Establish A Flexible Schedule – The more rigid you are the less likely you will be to develop a work life balance that is actually successful. You have to understand that there will be times when work requires more attention and other times when your personal life requires more attention. It’s easy enough to balance the two when you allow a little flexibility in your schedule. Always leave room for the unexpected, that way you are never taken by surprise.

Balance Your Workload – You’ll need to make sure that you take on enough work to keep you busy, but not so much work that you can’t create balance in your life. Take on additional tasks at work only when you feel up to it, and you know your family won’t be impacted by you coming home late a couple of nights in a given week. Likewise don’t overbook yourself with birthday parties and anniversary parties, unless however you can balance your personal obligations with your work ones successfully.

Prioritize Your Activities – There are going to be times when you can’t get everything done. Don’t panic! As long as you have prioritized your activities you’ll ensure that you take care of the most important ones first, and you can always catch up on less important activities later.

Delegate – Any seriously successful work-life balancer knows that you simply can’t succeed unless you know how to delegate. Know who you can turn to in a time of need and who has a skill set that is compatible with your needs, so that when the occasion arises you can dish out some of the items on your plate to others. Delegation isn’t simply for official ‘work’ tasks. You can also delegate personal tasks including the laundry and other chores.

Work life balance is easily created when you schedule enough time for your personal interests and work tasks. You can do this by organizing your schedule and taking great care not to overburden your plate at any given time.

Also remember that to achieve a successful work life balance you must put your personal life at or near the top of your priority list.

If work is your only priority, you won’t succeed at both.
Finding meaningful and challenging work is an important aspect of any work life balance.

As much as we love our children it is important to feel we are successful and contributing to society.
 
The good news is you don’t have to give up one or the other.
You can manage to work and still raise your family, and accomplish both successfully!
