Good morning, everyone! It's my turn to share with you how I'm using my Papertrey Ink Moments Inked Planner these days, so I thought I'd talk a little bit about balance and how I'm hoping to find better balance in 2016.
This past year was a wonderful one for Sean and me, but we completely lost sight of work/life balance. "Everyone does that" you say. "He opened a brand new restaurant last year, what do you expect?!" you ask. "You're self-employed; you can work whenever you want to" you insist. Well, maybe, but after months of working 12 to 18 hours a day, six or seven days a week we found ourselves burned out, tired, and not as connected to one another as is probably healthy. So when this year began, I was bound and determined to reclaim our balance.
The way I figure, the first step to finding balance is actually writing a schedule and sticking to it. I've never written a schedule for myself before; I just start working when I wake up and stop here and there for snacks masquerading as meals. No more! When Sean entered his schedule into our joint Google calendar I decided to write a schedule for myself based on his hours (in large part because when he's home I get distracted and want to spend time with him).
So there you have it, a few ways I'm working to find a better balance in 2016. I hope you've enjoyed today's post! Have a great day and I'll see you again soon!
