This is the age of modernity, speedy technology, and innovation at its best. You have to be smart, dynamic, and very particular about what you want to do in your life and how you are going to do it. Especially, for women, things have changed drastically and their lives have taken a circle course into a whole new paradigm. Women, now have to balance their family life and professional field simultaneously and things become tougher once you are married.
Before marriage, things are pretty rosy and comfortable for women who don’t have to look into the home front, since, they have their supermoms to take care of the household chores. But once you tie the nuptial knot, it’s your turn to be the super-woman and manage both, professional and personal spaces successfully.
Few essential steps for a successfully balanced marriage and work-life:
1. Wake up to some healthy yoga and diet:
Wake up to the refreshing tunes of the morning raga and gear up for the day with yoga. Keep just 30 minutes for ‘the special me time’ when you can listen to some soothing music, do some yoga, grab a cup of green tea, and most importantly decide your schedule for the day.
2. An exclusive “to do” list; must for a modern woman:
Once you have created your “to-do list” for the day, you can easily write them down in your diary or colorful stick-on so that you can see them in front of your eyes. This is helpful, especially, if you are working from home or run your own home-based business.
3. Give modern technology a try, you will love it:
This technology season get smart and prioritize your tasks. You can easily download a routine creation application or simply use your smartphone’s inbuilt calendar to keep a track of the works you want to do each day. You can also try cloud computing and storage facilities as well. Having a cloud storage software on your smartphone or laptop makes it easier for you to do your project online, upload it, and share it with your boss, colleagues, team members, and clients.
4. Time management: Must for a modern All-rounder:
If you belong to a more or less traditional family, then you are expected to cook for your family as well. In such cases, you must start your day a bit earlier so that you have sufficient time to cook and get ready for office.
5. Schedule your timely meals n stay healthy:
Have your meals in a timely fashion and in the right proportion. Thriving on a healthy diet makes it easier to stay healthy and this has a positive effect on your personal and professional life, making it easier for you to balance your home and office effectively.
6. Don’t overburden; Prioritize:
Time management is a very important factor. Whether you are at home or office, always try to finish your work within a stipulated time frame, so that your other commitments don’t suffer any setback due to delay in commencement and execution. Don’t overwork yourself as that will help you to be more productive at the workplace but the success will last for very little time since this will take a toll on your health and do major damage that will affect your lifestyle adversely.
7. Divide work with your spouse:
Share your duties at home. Gone are the days when all household works had to be done by women. The woman of today are smarter and men today are more flexible. The modern urban set up makes it easier to manage your home by sharing responsibilities.
Finally, though your work gives you the identity of a strong woman, it’s your family and loved ones that completes you. So you must always have space for the exclusive “family time” when you can enjoy some special moments.
