Balancing work and life: the endless juggle
We live in a constantly changing world and one that demands a “fast and furious” approach. The reality is that for many, the days of 9-5 are long gone. Past notions of a cosy “safe” job have been replaced with stress, anxieties, untold pressures
and increasing intrusion into personal lives.
This environment can create a real sense of divided loyalty. At times it can leave you feeling that you have all the success yet not enough opportunities to enjoy what you have worked so hard for.
As thrilling as life in the fast lane is, it is not without its speed bumps and potholes.
You may feel the economic pressures; that you’re barely “treading water” and maintaining the standard of living that you have got used to, is becoming more of a challenge.
During recession your anxieties and stresses become even more magnified. The fear of redundancy, or downsizing and more importantly the stress of having to say no to your family and disappointing them, heap even more pressure on to you and give you more of a
reason to work harder. It may be your own desire for promotion and career success that leads you to believe that you have to give every waking minute of your life to work.
In this high pressured environment, are your beliefs based on fact or fear?
“I can’t do anything right”
On one side there is the relentless pressure of work and on the other side the needs of home and family. At times, balancing the need to be both the bread winner and the “good” parent feels like an impossible task.
You know why you work so hard - to provide the best for your family, but that knowledge can count for little when their complaints and criticisms leaves you feeling like you can never do enough.
What are you supposed to do?
If you are career minded you face extra criticisms from others. From people’s hurtful comments about you “neglecting” your family and being “selfish” to blaming you for your children’s “bad behaviour”. After all, “you are never there for them…”
But how can you reconcile the needs of your family versus your desire to excel in your career?
Why is it that so few people manage to get the balance right?
Sometimes work can leave you exhausted; the constant pressure and stress does not seem to leave you when you get home.
Even when you are with your family, your mental and physical exhaustion prevents you from having the quality time that you want and they need. Sometimes you are short tempered or too tired and impatient.
Other times you want to be left alone – where is your “me time”?
At times, arguments and upsets ensue, creating tense, destructive and resentful family environments. Your work productivity also suffers as your anxieties, stresses and tensions from home spill over into your work life. You feel guilty or frustrated that you are constantly
underperforming – you know that you can do a lot better…
The vicious circle of continuous stress, both at work and at home can leave you feeling exasperated and at times stuck in a “rat race” with no way out other than that with a traumatic outcome.
You can fulfil your potential, have a successful career and live a happy personal life. Tip the balance back to equilibrium and find the poise you need to grace your life. Find out how by visiting ourconsulting website, orcontact ustoday to book your consultation.
Perhaps this is you. You’ve always ‘worked hard’, given it 110%. You’re the first into the office in the morning and more often than not, the last one to leave.
The need to ‘work hard’ was instilled into you at an early age; after all, successful people have to ‘work hard’ to get the success they ‘deserve’.
But sometimes you feel that you are missing out on life.
Your family see you rarely – it’s almost as if they have their own life and you are merely an occasional part of it.
Some of your colleagues talk of their home and family life and you ask yourself when do they get the time to do those things?
Your partner says that you always put work first and it causes conflicts at home, your private life is falling apart, but work still draws you like a magnet.
Sometimes you just don’t see it – work is your passion.
Yet the thought of not working hard leaves you fearful, anxious and guilty.
It’s not that you don’t care about them, but work is what you do, what you live for. You may feel that you are being forced to choose and it’s an impossible choice.
Perhaps for you work is your sanctuary to escape from your personal problems. You would rather immerse yourself in work than become depressed about the rest of your life. You can’t stop because then
the other aspects of your life take over. At work you have control and it is one area of your life where you are a success.
But sometimes, being a workaholic can leave you feeling lonely and deprived of your most basic needs.

Business ownership - Work, life, Panic!
Sometimes you feel that you are drowning. You feel so frustrated, there are so many things you need to do in a day, so many expectations and demands that you feel you are barely coping with.
You can’t stay focused on your work, your ability to organise and prioritise, your once greatest asset has now been replaced with constant thoughts of panic.
Work is always on your mind, and even when you are away from it, it preoccupies you, to the point that others have noticed and commented, ‘Well you might as well not be here’ they say. In some respects perhaps they are right.
You’re not there; you’re still at work, always at work. But what do you do? After all, it is your business.
You feel that you are not coping, but to ‘fail’ fills you with panic, fear and uncertainty. You have invested so much of your time, money and effort that the mere thought of failure brings you out in a cold sweat. You don’t eat, don’t sleep,
you are constantly living in fear, always worrying and there is always something that needs your personal attention.
You do not seem to be able to make anyone happy, either at work or at home. ‘Can’t they see I’m doing the best I can?’ You say it to yourself, but all the time you live in fear.
You see your work suffering, your health as well. You know it can’t go on much longer, that something is going to snap.
Replace panic with cool efficiency and take back control. Find out how by visiting ourconsulting website, orcontact ustoday to book your consultation.
The working couple, the daily grind…
The economy leaves you no choices. The mortgage, the children, your lifestyle, they all demand that both of you work. It seems like a never ending routine of work and more work. Life has become one monotonous round of commuting, work and constant
tiredness and you see no end to it.
All the enthusiasm you had when you were younger has gone. Where is your ‘spark’, your sense of fun, your spontaneity, your sense of adventure? You see few choices, no way out and slowly but surely you see yourself sinking into gloom and depression.
Work is a constant battle, office politics frustrate, but the fear of redundancy keeps you where you are and makes the situation seem never ending. You take your frustrations home with you. Short tempers, irritability and annoyances are taken out on
the kids and on each other. You are constantly tired, sometimes exhausted.
You sex life is suffering; you’re even too tired for a cuddle. You see that your relationship is deteriorating yet you see no way out. Is this the life you imagined?

Young, free… and working
When you were studying you had all these plans. After University you were going to have a great career, a fantastic social life, be the life and soul of every party.
Then there was the excitement of your graduation, of moving somewhere new, the first job and then the first decent pay check! Then life got a little more serious. You had your career to ‘manage’ and you had to knuckle down and work hard.
Before long you were working long hours and now you look back at your University days like some long lost dream.
There were also plans for a relationship, commitment and maybe even a family, but these never materialised. How can you even begin to find that someone special when the only thoughts going through your mind when you finish work now, are going
home, eating something and then crashing out?
The thought of nights out, friends and a social life seem impossible. Even when you do go out, you worry about being home early enough to be ‘fresh’ the next day. You have a responsible job, people rely on you and your dream career has somehow
become a burden, a chore, even a nightmare.
What choices do you have? Give it up?
That is not what you want, but you need to find some kind of equilibrium, some kind of balance that enables you to live your life, not just survive your work.
Work to live, not live to work. Give yourself the chance to make your dreams come true. Find out how by visiting ourconsulting website, orcontact ustoday to book your consultation.
My office is my home…
Sometimes your private life takes over your work life and the boundaries between the two become blurred.
At work you constantly think of your private life and personal crisis. Colleagues comment on the fact that you spend more time on personal calls than on work. You’re the one in the office they all talk about, the one with the ‘problems’, the unprofessional one.
It affects your work and you know that it is limiting your chances for promotion and it might even jeopardise your job. But though you know all of this, you do not seem to be able to do anything about it.
You just can’t switch off from the issues affecting you.
How are you supposed to just ‘leave them at the door’ as you walk in? Your mind is not on your work and as a consequence, tasks take longer, sometimes to the extent that you have to either stay behind or take work home with you. Neither work nor your personal life
is satisfactory and the vicious circle continues without end.
