12 Ways Working Moms Can Rebalance Work & Life

How to Successfully Walk the Work/Life Tightrope Without a Net

Be Positive

Some days no one says the right thing. You schlep in with armloads of groceries and your spouse asks if you remembered the one item you forgot. You stay up to bake brownies and your son says, "The paper said to bring salad."

So, fill in the gaps. Compliment yourself extravagantly. Can you sing along to every song on the radio? Can you calculate prices per ounce in your head? Did your intuition on a client need pay off? Well, we're certainly impressed. You should be too. Keep the positive self-talk going and you'll never notice the raised eyebrows as you set your brownies next to the salad tongs at the school potluck.
