7 Different Ways You Can Grab Extra Family Time In Between Hectic Office Hours

As a working professional, you have twin responsibilities upon your shoulders – for your profession; as well as for the special people for whom you work so hard – your family. Sometimes, you might get logged with work and may not even have time for a coffee. In these situations the stress would not only reflect on your work, but it will also affect your family.

But family is family. Even if you have had a bad day at the office, this special group of people will always admire you for your hard work and be there to back you up. All they ask is a fraction of your time and attention. Here’s how you can balance your work and family time even in grinding office hours.

1. A good morning equals a good day

This is the best time to engage your family. Involve your kids and spouse in meditation and exercise early in the morning, ask the kids about their school activities, make breakfast for them, or simply leave them a note or a pre-recorded message and they will be less worried about not spending time with you.

2. Maintain contact

Exhausted or stressed out at work? Take a few deep breaths and call your loved ones. Their voice would be enough to remind you the reason you are working so hard, will boost your energy and give you motivation to work harder. Ask them how they are doing and let them feel your care.
