The Work-Life Struggle

It’s a challenge to work a full-time job while taking care of a baby and a family. If you’re already doing it—or you’re preparing to do it as your maternity leave ends—make sure you aren’t taking on the full load at home, if you’ve got anyone there who can help.

Everyone needs to know how important it is to your well-being—and, therefore, to their well-being—to share in the jobs of day-to-day life.

It can also help to prioritize tasks that must be done: What can be saved for the weekend? Find places to save your time and energy, and be willing to reach out for help to those who can give it.

At work, look into flex-time or part-time hours, if you can manage it. Sometimes the same amount of work can get done in fewer, longer days per week, giving you a few days off to focus on the rest of your life.
