The Work Life Balance

Real Estate Agent with Buyer's Edge Company Inc



Balancing Work & Life Is A Challenge


In the business of real estate, it's a challenge to carve out time for yourself. Just today, I checked my schedule and then rechecked the calendar to be sure I could spend the hour and a half it takes to get a manicure and pedicure. When I settled into the chair and relaxed, it was great! 

It had been too long since I gave myself some time to recharge and I'm reminded that I should practice what I preach!


  • Practice deep breathing, the belly breathing that requires deep exhalations and big inhalations. Consider breathing in for 4-6 breaths and breathing out for 6-8 breaths. The point of this is clearing out all the stale air from the lungs making room for fresh air.
  • Pause before speaking or acting. Just taking a breath or a pause before reacting in any situation gives you and everyone around you a moment, a few seconds to offer a smarter response. 
  • Take a day off from the computer and make arrangements to have someone else answer your calls. The World Wide Web (www) came about August of 1991. Computer screens have been an everyday convenience for 28 years. That is not long enough to fully understand the impact this "convenience" has on our emotional and intellectual functions. 
  • Take a hike or walk in nature. John Muir was a naturalist and the father of our National Forests  John Muir saved the natural landscape of America and his writings have long inspired me to get out and enjoy the outdoors. If you want to change your mood or need to contemplate serious decisions-get outside.


I wish all of you success in your business.

Remember, take time to take care of you!

Woah! Wasn't expecting to see your bottom in the air! 

But yes! We should all take a break and remember to breathe and enjoy life, as best as we can. We are all very lucky to reap the benefits of hard work bringing in closings that give us a great living. 

Stay balanced!

Very true words. If we're to have longevity in our personal and business lives, we have to find a healthy balance. Give our selves permission to do something that we like to do!

Hi Victoria,  Thanks for reminding us all to take time for ourselves.  Deep breathing, is an excellent way to take a couple of minutes and re-center yourself. Balance is the name of the game.
