 Q   & A Wednesdays

 

Question:  I’m so stressed out due to my job.   What can I do so job stress does not affect my family?

 

Answer: Leave work   at the office. Have time set aside for Family time which means no work and   even technology free time.This means during family time you unplug. I suggest   during dinner time, there is no technology. Plan family time where   you have something to look forward to. Also, use your ride home as a time-out.   Make it as relaxed as possible, do some deep breathing or listen to some   relaxing music. Some of my clients will stop on the side of the road for a few   minutes to deep breathe or meditate. If you take care of yourself like we   discussed above, you will be less stressed. Make sure to include de-stressing   activities into your life such as yoga, breathing exercises, exercise,   meditation, etc

 

Question: My career   is more successful than my husband; it is causing stress in our marriage. How   do I handle this?

 

Answer:  They call women who make more money   then their husbands the” Breadwinner wife” Some men don’t mind it and actually   embrace it. Some women like making more money but I also have meet women who   complain and go as far as calling their husbands “losers” for making less or   having a part time job. There is no right or wrong, it’s what works best for   the family. So, having open communication between spouses is the best way to   find out, is this working for us? How does each spouse feel? Then making a   decision that both partners agree upon.  If your in the beginning of the   relationship, discussing what will work best if you take the relationship to   the next level is important especially if you plan on having kids. Women,  always remember not to measure the success of your relationship on money, no   matter who is making the money.
