Having a busy schedule can make it difficult to find alone time. Perhaps you spend the majority of your day at the office. Then, you go out with co-workers and friends.

It also might be more difficult for you to make it to girl’s nights. Although you cannot participate in these activities each day, try to have fun. It is easy to get overwhelmed with work, social responsibilities, and other obligations. A little fun occasionally is a great stress reliever. It might even help you to be more productive in your work and community responsibilities.

Remember, you have so much to offer the world. The key is to not get overwhelmed in the process. These tips can help you stay balanced and succeed in all your objectives as a workingwoman.

  1. I have long hair so don’t need the length but could use them for thickness. Thanks for sharing.

  2. The photos on here are beautiful!
    Jeez- How strange we forget about these things all the time. You reminded me of how long it’s been since I took time out to do my hair nicely, instead of the standard “Mom uniform” ponytail or hairband.

  3. Since I don’t have kids at home, it is easier for me to make time for myself… but life gets so busy that sometimes, I don’t get enough alone time.

  4. Thank you for the tips. I love it. We really have to always give time for ourselves to make sure we can extend our happiness to our family. We became more effective mom and wife.

  6. Funny, when I worked outside the home I seemed to find time for everything. Now that I am home life is crazy and I never have the time I need. Things pop up and people expect that you can jump to get them done – of course all of us that are SAHM are just sitting and watching tv right!

  7. I struggle with having a private time for myself. I have 3 boys who constantly following me or asking something. Would be nice to go to a Spa and relax.

  14. With our super hectic work schedule it becomes very difficult to take time out for ourselves. I usually set aside half hour daily for myself and either read or listen to music.
