Make Time For Family
© Terri Seymour of SeymourProducts.com
As I sit here thinking about my two boys, Jesse who is 16 and
heading to college next fall and Dustin, my baby, who is almost as
tall as I am, I realize that no matter what happens in our lives we
have to make time for the most important thing that we have. We all
know that I am talking about family!
These days, our daily lives can become so hectic and overwhelming
that sometimes we forget what is truly important. Especially if you
are trying to build your own home business. Our business becomes our
life and other things get pushed to the side.
I recently was in a state of confusion about my
online business. Although I love my business, I felt it was taking
over my life. I felt so overwhelmed and in over my head. I thought
my life would be so much simpler without having Seymour Products. I
actually considered quitting.
Well, thank goodness, after much contemplation and a couple of chats
with a good friend, I knew I could never give up my online career. I
worked too long and hard and made too many friends to just quit!!
Seymour Products is and always will be a part of my life.
Here are some things you can do to prevent your business from taking
over your life:
1. Set aside some time every day for family. Having a little time
with your family is very relaxing, invigorating and refreshing. Have
a family movie, play board games, take a family walk or bike ride,
or have a picnic. There are so many simple things you can do with
your family that do not require a lot of time and/or money.
2. Set aside some time for yourself. This is something that we all
need sometimes. Just site, relax, read a good book, listen to music,
watch TV or just relax with a cup of coffee. Whatever it is that
soothes you and refreshes your mind. Taking a little solo time will
make family and work time much more enjoyable.
3. Organize your time. This simple yet effective task will enable to
do much more work and have more family time than just going from one
thing to another, trying to figure out what to do next.
4. Exercise. This is another thing you can do with family or solo.
Go for a nice brisk walk or hop on your bike and go for a ride.
Exercise is a great stress reducer and it also helps refresh your
5. Get involved with your kids lives. Talk to them. By doing this
you will feel much more in control in your personal and work life.
This will give you a stability you might not feel otherwise.
6. Have a date night with your hubby/wife or sweetheart. Sometimes
we get lost in our lives and don't take time to really be with each
other. To do this is extremely important because if we are happier
and more relaxed with our mate, that feeling will spill out into
other areas of our lives, making us more productive.
7. Take a day off from your computer. Go out for the day with your
family and do not even think about email or websites or business of
any kind. After such a day, you will be refreshed and ready to get
back to work.

Besides many other things, having Seymour Products has instilled in
me just how important family is. No matter what life throws at you,
always make time for family!!
