Attaining a Realistic Work-Life Balance


Finding the perfect work-life balance is a common goal for almost everybody, but it's important to acknowledge that achieving this is unrealistic. Instead, focus on adopting a realistic approach to balance. Understand that some days may require more time at work, while others may allow for more personal time. True balance is achieved over time, not necessarily within each day.

Heather Monahan, founder of the career mentoring group #BossinHeels, emphasizes the need for flexibility and continuous assessment of your position relative to your goals and priorities. “At times, your children may need you, and other times, you may need to travel for work, but allowing yourself to remain open to redirecting and assessing your needs on any day is key in finding balance.”

Rather than striving for a perfect schedule all times, work to make conscious choices based on the present moment. Realize that work-life balance is a constant balancing act with constantly changing circumstances. Give yourself permission to adjust and prioritize what matters most in each moment. Remember, a good work-life balance is about creating harmony over the long term, rather than striving for perfection every day.
