Work Life Balance Solutions for Men:
1. Ignite the discussion in work culture.
The more working fathers vocalize their situation and seek change, the more quickly positive things will happen. Don’t throw a pity party, but don’t slink back and deny your situation either. Incorporate working father discussions into interactions with colleagues. The more needs are talked about and visible within a workplace, the more organizations become motivated to improve policies and keep employees engaged.
2. Talk to your employer.
3. Have Patience.
4. Accept help.
5. Buckle down.
Leave the car behind and jump on the tow truck. Work life balance isn’t a solo effort but a team adventure. There are people in every man’s life who are willing to support this journey. Be humble enough to accept help and dedicated enough to power through. Above all else, remember work life balance is about much more than you, it’s about you and everyone you love.
