12 Ways Working Moms Can Rebalance Work & Life

How to Successfully Walk the Work/Life Tightrope Without a Net

Stay Flexible

No confession needed. If you're like most of us, work in all its various forms is a bit more than you can chew. That's why you’re eating takeout for dinner and bargaining with your spouse over mulching the garden. It's why you tripped on a laptop cord on your way to brush your teeth. 

You can't control all of it, but you can organize and channel some essentials. The load will ebb and flow with seasons, children's ages and rhythms at work. Expect to adjust, be ready to redefine "necessary" and be kind to yourself. Don't plant those feet too firmly though. Make like a log roller and remain ready to shift as needed.
