“A survey of 1,800 workers found that almost half bring their work stress home and their relationships suffer because of it.”(Schieman, 2009)
The above study found that it is becoming more and more difficult to separate work-life and family-life. You pour a lot of energy into work, but sometimes it’s hard to switch off at the end of the day.
And the electronic age doesn’t help. Work starts bleeding into family-time thanks to emails and Smart Phones.
The result? Your loved-ones suffer.
You are either too distracted to give them your full attention, too tired, or maybe even take out your stress on them because you are irritable. You know it’s not your family’s fault if you’ve had a bad day, but regretfully, sometimes they pay.
Why We Do What We Do
One of the main reasons people work is because they love their family. We want to provide for our family, care for them, make sure they are okay. Research (Stosny, 2007) found that men who lost their families through divorce experienced a significant decline in their motivation to work because the purpose for working (their wife and kids) was no longer there in the same way.
In reality most would say that their loved-ones are by far more important than work in the big scheme of things.
So if our loved-ones are the most important in the big scheme of things, we have to get better at transitioning from work to home. We have to get better at finding strategies so that we can walk in the front door at the end of the day, clear, de-stressed, and ready to be attentive to the people we care about the most.
How good would it be to be able to separate work and home instead of them bleeding all over each other?
It is possible. Very possible.
