Today, I would like to share my thoughts about the life-work balance. This is a topic that might sound simple (just don’t bring your work back home and you’ll be good) but in reality, it is quite tricky. To begin, it is important to recognize which activities would you consider work. For me, going to work is undeniably one of them, but housework (maybe except cooking) is work as well. And we probably know that there is always something to do at home (especially with toddler making sure that their toys are scattered around the entire surface of your place).
So when I was planning before, I was considering any cleaning-related task as a ‘life’ part. I wasn’t paid for that (and I am still not). So when I looked at my schedule, it looked that I have quite a lot of life in it. However, recently I reevaluated it and came to conclusion that it isn’t as much of a rainbow, if you look at the time which is really for me to relax and do whatever I like. It is even harder now, when I want to spend some quality time with my son too, I finding myself getting my chores done late at night when my son is asleep. This make me go to bed late and as a result I am more and more tired each day.
What is the solution to this problem? To be honest, I don’t have any yet, but I am working on this. I don’t know, however, if it is possible to achieve it. To eat cake and still have a cake. But this is my new problem to solve. Hopefully, I will come up with some remedy, that will help me feel like I have my life well-balanced. And if I will, I’ll let you know.
However, that’s all for today’s post and I’ll see you in my next one.
