As an internet marketer, we all know the internet doesn’t stop, there is always something for us to do. Like keeping up with developments, setting up campaigns, tracking roi’s, traffic & more. All this sort of stuff feeds our determination to keep moving forward. This leads getting better results and as a result feel successful in the work that we have taken part in.
However on the flip side is the effect this addiction has on family. The balance between work and family can be one of the most difficult things to overcome.
Here’s a few tips to help through the tough times of trying to balance after hours family and work time:
- Schedule family time
Sometimes we get cought up in what we are doing and forget about spending some much needed time with our families. Schedule movie nights, times to go for a walk or may be even dinner somewhere nice 🙂
Communicate with your partner to prepare her for some specific project that you’re working on and the amount of after hours time that this will take.
Stand back and think about how your partner might be feeling.
- Most importantly create time to spend with your family
Even if it’s half an hour when you get home from the office, or an hour round dinner time. This can make the difference.
It can be hard to keep up with everything but be sure you think of your loved ones and spend some quality time together.
