- Try and not take a short-term look on things:
“You need to balance work and family.”
“I make sure that my work day ends at 7 p.m., so I can come home and help with feedings and bathing.”
“Nowadays this is more possible with instant messenger and video chat. You can also break for lunch and spend that time with your family.”
“Whether it’s going to the gym, taking a walk or hanging out with friends, it will allow you to decompress.”
“If I miss a meeting I don’t beat myself up too much. I try to have a long-term look on things.”
