How to Make It All Work When You Wear Too Many Hats

By Sandy Schroeder

If you have a lot of different roles, you know what it means to wear too many hats. Sometimes you may find yourself juggling your roles, and trying to preserve your sanity. You may be a mom, worker, runner, wife, gardener, friend and daughter. Each role is special and each role creates different demands.

Staying balanced can be critical. If you are feeling the pressure, here are some simple steps to survive. The idea is to look great, feel great, and make it all work.

Make Time to Move

Staying active is crucial. Keep walking, jogging, or working out. When time becomes compressed, walk at lunch, or do jumping jacks and stretches during breaks. Go biking or walking with your family, and keep looking for new ways to be active with your family. The physical and mental rewards will help you keep everything else together.

Feed Your Mind and Your Soul

Use early morning or late evening time to read, write, do yoga, meditate, weave, knit, or paint. Whatever scratches your creative itch will keep you in the game and make you more effective with others.

Make Time for Your Spouse and Your Kids

Just taking the time to mellow out with your loved ones can make everything else more meaningful. Finding out how their day was and what they are thinking can be amazing. When we don’t make that time, we risk losing the strong connections that we all need to survive. Set aside time to be with your kids, and reserve time to go out with your spouse. Don’t make it a big production. Just make sure there are times that allow each of you to connect.

Make Time for Yourself

Whatever you do every day that makes you smile and helps you thrive needs its own space. Some of us run businesses or work on numerous projects. We may also cook, sew and garden. Whatever works for you, build in the time to make it happen. A friend of mine had been a yoga enthusiast for years. When she became a mother, she kept her weekly yoga classes going. She said those classes made her a better mother, friend and wife. I think she was right. Keep moving and keep looking for the best answers for you.
