Manage Your Work Life Without Sacrificing Your Love Life
Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Time and money: the two things we all wish we had more of in life. The reality is that both diminish at a rate faster than we want. When you throw priorities into the mix it can be hard to choose between where to place what, especially when it comes to work and love.

Work = Money. Love = Happines. Well, for the most part at least. These days you it seems like you just can't do enough to have enough. So how does one choose between success and desire? Fortunately, you don't have to.

The right kind of balance allows you to have it all, in moderation. Many people use that same idea in their diets where they don't limit any food group, rather balance the intake of each. In this case, you equal out the time you dedicate to the different areas of your life.

Your job might not allow you to always be home in time to have dinner with your significant other or take off work for some quality time with your loved ones. Some of these tips mcan help you get the different parts of your life to complement one another.

For example, setting some ground rules for yourself. If you have a hard time getting out of the office, set a time limit for how late you'll allow yourself to stay the doesn't infringe on time spent at home. This also means time spent working from home. Coordinate a schedule that the both you can agree on such as which day on the weekend you both can work from home or which hours of the day.

Of course, you can't discuss work without getting to the topic of money. It's a common issue that many couples deal with so you might as well address it sooner than later. The worst time to bring up money is when money's not good. Make it clear what each of you expect in the case of certain circumstances such as career changes or even layoffs. Is either of you willing to be the sole bread winner? If not, better find out before it's too late.

When it comes down to it, you want to spend as much time with your love as much as they want to with you and where there's a will, there's a way. The only thing that's really stopping you is you, despite work seeming like the actual barrier. It's times like these that make the little things count even more. Whether it be a trip to the grocery store or setting up a date night, couples that make it work are the ones that wholeheartedly want to and find ways of doing it.

This can sometimes mean having to give up other things. Perhaps cutting down girl's/guy's night from every week to every other week. Sacrifices should also be evenly balanced if you want to avoid cause for any other issues, although that should go without saying.

In a most relationships, each person goes from being a "me" to a "we." When making decisions it's important to think in terms of a team. Along with making sacrifices comes making compromises. A basic example of this being the "You cook and I'll clean," agreement.

It's no joke when people say that relationships are work. When you have so many things going on, harmonizing it all can sometimes be exhausting. But you can get the reward without putting the work in. They only people who says it's impossible to have it all are the ones who haven't tried.
