How TF Do I…balance my career and my family?

It can be hard to figure out how to balance work and family life...Let's just say it's a never-ending juggling act.

Also known as: work-life balance, a never-ending juggling act, working mom guilt, WFH.

Regularity: If you’re not constantly asking yourself how TF to get it all done without dropping the ball, let us know. 

Our advice:

  • Check your guilt at the door–whatever you’re doing is enough.
  • Ask for help and outsource. From a friend, a hired caregiver, your partner, your co-workers or your family. They’re your village for a reason.
  • Create boundaries, vocalize them and be present during family time.
  • Prioritize your health and happiness.
