A Time To Work And A Time To Play!

May 10, 2008
There are very few aspects in life that require as much balance as juggling the nine to five work schedule plus your relationship, kids, home, and personal lives. Whether you are single, married with children, or married without children each of these situations has their own individual challenges when it comes to balancing the work-life load. Utilizing work-life balance affirmations will help you to master the demands of the work environment while still maintaining a healthy "play" life.

The Single Life

If you're single, you may be making the erroneous conclusion that work is the definition of your life achievements. The argument for this conclusion is that you live alone, therefore there is no one to appreciate whether you make your bed in the morning, or pick up your dirty clothes. So, you may define your own worth in how successful you are in the work environment. This translates into long hours at the office, with your "play" time consisting of making contacts at after-hour business socials.

There is considerable wisdom in the old adage "All work and no play makes Jack - or Jill - a dull boy" (or girl, of course). We all must balance both our work and their play life with positive work-life balance affirmations. For example: "I enjoy spending quality time with myself apart from work." or "My job reflects that I am an intelligent, passionate person." or "I choose to invest time in the things I like to do."

Married without Children

A working couple with no children may lead to many nights such as the following: A king size bed with two very intense individuals, each with a laptop and a myriad of paperwork scattered next to them, and one of the many late night shows playing in the background. These individuals need positive work-life balance affirmations in order for them not to lose focus on each other, nor themselves. For example: "I appreciate the fact that my spouse and I both have careers." or "I appreciate the time we have as a family and I actively seek out more time for just us." or "I am enriched by both my work and my play."

Married with Children

Finally, there is the challenge of balancing work with a family with children. It is a balance of not only work and the life of the family; but also balancing their own personal time in the mix. Their positive work-life balance affirmations might be as follows: "I choose to set work aside and spend time with my family free from thoughts of work." or "I cherish the quiet moments with the love of my life." or "I appreciate the opportunity to be with my loving family." or "I love spending my time off playing with my children."

A list of positive affirmations to help you achieve your goal for work-life balance is below:

* I keep work and play in a healthy balance.
* I deserve to spend time relaxing.
* I deserve to spend time enjoying my family.
* I have a balanced life.
* I cherish the time I have to enjoy my spouse.
* I enjoy my work and the excellent job that I do.
* I enjoy my time to play with my children.
