8 Tips for Finding Work and Life Balance
For the Work-From-Home Mom
Create a Separate Work Area
If possible, make sure your work space is as far removed as possible from your living space, to help you resist the urge to
squeeze work into personal time.
Get it done: Even if you can’t devote an entire room to a working office, try keeping work space as separate as possible. For example, if your work space is in your kitchen, don’t throw your household bills onto your work desk. Instead, designate two different specific areas for “family business” and “work business.” If you’re using a common area as a home office during the day, Vozza recommends putting your work away when it’s “after hours” (try getting a few storage bins that you can tuck into a closet or under a bed when you’re not working). Out of sight is, as they say, out of mind.
