Happy Wednesday!🙋🏼♀️ I get asked sometimes, “Hala, how do you balance your personal life with the demands of social media, doesn’t IG distract you?”🤨
So I’m sharing my approach to finding balance in a busy 🌎
As a mom of two, wife, chauffeur, cook.. who also assists in managing her husband’s Restoration business... and now starting a path as an online educator, growing my own online business, I can tell you, it’s not easy to juggle these responsibilities, it takes a lot of grit, planning and perseverance!🙋🏼♀️
A little inside scoop, while I was discovering the joys of life after leaving my career and staying home with the kids, I created a vision for my life that includes all the things that I love....and I’m simply not willing to compromise☺️😎
I also had a career for over 20 years of my life where I used to work around 60-65 hours per week..even though it was exhausting at times, it forced me to plan for my days better and get more done with less time⏰ #glasshalffull
1️⃣I am fully present for my family time...breakfast, lunches, homework, dinner, sports, games...my family will always come first and those times are sacred to us!
2️⃣Forget multitasking-single tasking is way more effective!! I schedule my to do’s into time slots and complete one thing at a time. Dedicating a couple of hours during the day, while the kids are at school, to work on my business and manage my husband’s ..all from our home office! Honestly working from home is a dream and combines two worlds!
3️⃣I spend about 30 mins during the day and 30 mins in the evening to engage on social media📲 I try not to be passively consuming content and make every minute on IG count🤳
4️⃣After the kids go to bed, an hour or two, a couple times a week allow me to stay on top of my game ..and I even skip those sometimes and watch some of my favourite shows with hubby. #worthit
I am simply enjoying this time of my life and not rushing through it ...loving and learning from the journey!!❤️The beauty of being your own boss means that you set the pace for your life🏃🏻♀️
👉🏼Now it’s your turn, how do you manage your personal life with social media?
