BALANCING WORK AND FAMILY

To change counterproductive habits that influence work/family balance, ask yourself these questions and then strive for improvement:

1. Where do I begin to change things that negatively impact my work/family balance?
2. What do I need to do to clearly draw the line between work and family?
3. What habits can I change?

MYTHS AND FACTS

Take a walk or exercise to lift a bad mood. Doctors at Duke University say taking regular walks will help lift depression, lessen tension, increase optimism, boost self-esteem and increase energy.

TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS

  • Be willing to sacrifice “perfection” to get things done.
  • Learn to say “no” to demands that don’t benefit you.
  • Arrange your work time to keep interruptions to a minimum
  • Be realistic about what you can accomplish during a given time period.
