Is your current Work Life Balance equation is not working as expected ? 9 points to help you out

After getting married when I joined office back, I was told to read about "Work Life Balance" by each of my lady managers. As I was living with my husband only and that ways we had no as such responsibilities with us, I found it as a dysfunctional term for me. My life was already balanced.After becoming mother, I realized why those ladies were talking about "Work Life Balance". Now I run short of time everyday and I juggle between completing my office work timely and taking care of my family needs.I can't stay late in office. I can't work on weekends. But I can't skip office every other day.When I am not able to finish my work being in office, I try to manage by doing it from home. But Giving equal hours to office and family doesn't look realistic because life is so fluid, you can't predict where your presence value more.
