Finding Flow with our new normal

With life as we know it flipped on its head many of us, myself included are looking to find a routine that works for not only ourselves but our kiddos as well. There are so many ideas of what to do, and ideas on how to make it work, I find them helpful. I take what works for me and use it and discard the rest. That's what I want you to do as you tune into today's episode. You might find one piece of advice that works and run with that.

Finding the balance with your partner

Sarah Jenks had shared are you taking over the brunt of the child rearing while your partner is working even though you have work to do as well? I think that is a fair point. Many of us are primed for the caretaking role. One idea that has worked well for my husband and I is to balance our solo, together, family, work time to our strengths.

 

We are opposites in terms of when we are at our most productive time. I prefer mornings, my hubby afternoon/evening hours. I still get up early to have my solo time, and then get a little work done, train clients virtually and he is on parenting duty. After lunch we have quiet time so I can either do self-care or wrap up work projects for the day and my hubby can now start his work. That's how we are making it work at our house. Since he is a night owl he stays up after I go to bed to have a little solo reflective time himself.
