3 Ways Working Mothers Can Balance a Career While Staying In-tune with Their Kids
Seven out of every 10 women with children under the age of 18 in the U.S. is currently employed.
While the number of working mothers is higher than ever, the workplace remains a difficult place for busy moms. From the pressure to out-perform male coworkers to the idea that you still have to be everywhere for your children, working moms are constantly under stress to do more than humanly possible. 
But the reality is that it is possible to balance a career while still staying in-tune with your kids. Keep reading to learn a few tips to help you do just that.
Rethink Your Work-Life Balance
If you're currently in a career that keeps you in the office late, requires you to bring work home, or that leaves you physically and mentally exhausted, it can be almost impossible to be a good mom and a good employee. And the stress of trying to do it all will only leave you exhausted.
Committing yourself to your life, your kids, and your own health and happiness starts with rethinking your work-life balance. While there are offices out there that give employees an opportunity for flex hours and other benefits to help working parents, the truth is that you'll inevitably still have to work to find your balance. Starting your own business that allows you to build your schedule and work from home every day eliminates this problem. Consider partnering with a company such as Amway to set your own hours and grow your own business. Check out these

Give Yourself Some Time Off
No company would expect an employee to work 8, 12, or even 18-hour workdays, 365 days a year with no time off. Whether you go to work in an office every day or work from home, or are even a full-time stay at home mom, giving yourself a break is an absolute necessity. In your work environment, this will help prevent burnout and keep you energized and focused. Giving yourself a break will also ensure that you have the energy you need to care for your little ones.
Your breaks should revolve around relaxing and refocusing your mind. Whether you take a few minutes at a time throughout the day to breath and do something you enjoy, or block out a couple of hours each week, taking time for yourself is essential.
Learn to Let Go
Too many moms feel the drive to perfect all areas of their lives. This means that all too often, they'd rather do everything around the house, with their kids, and at work, whether others are offering help or not.
Taking on too much on your own just means that your valuable time is suddenly stretched very thin. Whether it's making sure that you're splitting duties with your spouse or accepting babysitting a day or two a week from a family member, it's important to learn to be OK with others wanting to help out.
Balancing Your Career and Your Life
Balancing a successful career with being a great mom can be incredibly stressful. But by finding a job that allows for a better balance between your career and your life, giving yourself regular breaks, and learning to let others help, you give your work, your kids, and yourself the energy that they deserve and find the success that you've been dreaming of.
