38: What to Ask Yourself about Work-Life Balance

38: What to Ask Yourself about Work-Life Balance
What to Ask Yourself about Work-Life BalanceWe’ve been lied to! As mothers, we are taught to achieve some sort of balance between all the hats we wear, but what exactly is balance, and has it EVER been achieved? If so, that person needs a Nobel Prize because from my experience and mothers I’ve spoken to, this unattainable utopia has remained elusive. Telling a mother she just needs work-life balance can be harmful, because it sounds like a normal part of life, but it doesn’t actually exist. Also, when referring to work-life balance, it almost always leaves the needs of the person trying to achieve that balance out of the equation. It’s a common theme in our society to just keep working harder, and to do better, but at what cost?What if we changed our perspective of what work-life balance means to mothers in society and create a new narrative? Like going after your dreams after having children and setting a positive example for them to not let anything get in the way of their dreams. Or to be able to be fully present for your children because you yourself are fulfilled by the way you’ve structured your life for YOU, and not society’s expectations. The positive outcomes from making this switch can be exponential, but we have to change how we approach what it is to be a mother who is also a lot of other things.Join us in today’s podcast to learn why work-life balance is a hoax and what we can do to change it. Let’s take our power back together! Topics discussed in this episode:How work-life balance doesn't existLeaving mothers out of the equationWhy balance is directed primarily toward womenHow society has shaped the question around work-life balanceThe history of work-life balanceWhat balance means to our host JenQuestions to ask yourself when considering balanceHow to take your power backConnect with us:FacebookInstagramLinkedInTikTokListen to more episodes by visiting Apple Podcasts!
