Definitely sounds familiar … One of the things that helps me to keep more work-life balance and be calmer is that our son Cameron’s mood is directly related to mine. If I’m in a hurry – he feels hurried and stressed and usually acts out. If I’m calm and leave enough time for bed or getting ready for school – he is generally calm, but even if he’s not – I can manage the situation better. I’ve fallen into the ‘rush, rush, overscheduled trap’ lots of times – but history shows me it never makes me or anyone else in the family feel good. I want to be a good role model for Cameron and that inspires me to slow down! Thanks for the article.
