A Juggling Act
Today’s career women, including busy personal trainers, are continually challenged by full-time work and family/home commitments. A poll conducted by CareerWomen.com™ discovered that the majority of women are working 40 to 50 hours per week, and 53 percent of the respondents report that they are struggling to achieve work/life balance.
The poll asked for advice on achieving this elusive balance. The results clearly point to planning and personal effort. One tip suggested you leave work on time at least 3 days per week. Another advised scheduling weekends, or time off, just as you schedule your work week, planning activities with family and friends, a weekend trip or just something fun.
