How to Balance Life as an Administrative Assistant? – Ask an Admin

training_for_administrative_assistants

Welcome to another question for Ask an Admin. This is where the administrative assistant and executive assistant can submit any question they have and their peers will answer the question based on their previous experience. We believe that there are many different ways to approach problems, difficult tasks, and situations so we thought this would be a great way to provide you a place to share your input as well as receive input from others. So, executive assistants and administrative assistants from around the world, let’s help each other out!

This week Kat A. asks:

How do you balance home life and work life? I find myself overwhelmed at times meeting the needs and requests of my CIO and 4 Directors as the only admin for a busy utility, that oftentimes when I come home to my children and husband I feel like they get the leftovers. Between texts from my kids and my management team, constant emails, and calls, I have no energy left and am very short with my family, because I have had constant demands all day long. I feel like a mother at work and am beginning to resent my role.

Another great question! This is something that not only administrative assistants struggle with, but I think so many people struggle with a home life and work life balance! If we had 29 hours in the day it still wouldn’t be enough…so, how do we find that work/life balance?
