Hi, Svetlana!

Do you feel like you work in life are blending together? You're working from home, kids are at home, there is no commute and our mobility is still limited.

You may also feel split. It is a unique opportunity to spend more time with your kids. And you need to work! About 50% of remote workers reported that they work more hours than when they were at the office.

And then the guilt creeps up...

How to find the balance? 

Let me make it simple for you. There is no balance! The work-life balance does not exist.

Instead, you can be off-balance on purpose.

How does it work?

Imagine that your life is an orchestra and every part of your life, - life, work, health, self-care, learning - is an instrument. 

Your work may be a tuba (it can get pretty loud), your family is a cello. Your husband is a trombone, your wife - a violin or flute. You decide.

As the orchestra plays the tune, different instruments take the leading role. At times, your work may take precedence and your kids will need to respect your boundaries. At other times, you would give your kids a leading part. Then your relationships and your health. 

It's not a static percentage of time and resources that you spend on different areas of your life, it is a dynamic process.

You are the conductor of this orchestra. You get to choose and decide which instrument needs to play louder and you can tell another one to tone it down. As long as the tune feels harmonious to you.

So give yourself permission to not have the balance and just keep conducting. And I will do the same.
