This is by far the number one excuse I hear from people on a daily basis for why they aren't living the life they want. They are too busy trying to balance family and work life. We all hear about the famous work life balance phenomenal. However, very few can actually say they have achieved this. This is because we have the wrong perception. We seem to think that balancing work and home life requires it to be at 50/50 at all times. Which in my opinion is hard to come by.
What we need is a change in our perception of what work life balance means. For me, work life balance means that when you are at work you are one hundred percent present at work. When you are home you are one hundred percent at home enjoying your family and your time. You will feel more balanced when you are able to fully enjoy being present in what you are doing.
However, most of us are going about our day with our body in one place and our mind in another. We start to do one thing only to leave it half way in and start another task and so on. We are running around from one place to another thinking about that infamous to-do list that instead of it shrinking- it grows. In essence, never being present in what we are doing and as a result feeling like our plate is too full to add one more thing. So in the end we are too busy to get healthier, we are too busy to avoid burnt out, we are too busy to change things that are clearly not working.
When I work with my clients I help them with a strategy on how they can create the change they want in their lives without adding more to their plate. In reality, most often than not we develop a strategy on how they can take some stuff off their plate.
