Juggling between work and family is definitely not an easy task. Imagine the plight of a working mom who has to put in eight hours of work in the office every day, and then rush back home to take care of her family. It’s an exhausting ordeal, indeed.

Elizabeth Scott in her article, 'Working Moms and Stress Relief', published in verywell.com, says, "Working moms are notoriously busy, and often find that the unpredictability of parenting, especially parenting small children, leads to additional stress. For example, a potty-training accident or emotional meltdown on the way to day care has the potential to throw off an entire day (for both mother and child!) in terms of timing and stress."

The most important thing working moms need to learn is, how to manage their time effectively. This is necessary to maintain the perfect work–life balance. They should also know how to de-stress themselves to lead a happy and healthy life.

Nina G in her article, '8 Essential Tips Every Mom Needs for Work-Life Balance', published in workingmomsagainstguilt.com, suggests some time hacks that can make things easier for working moms. Some of the ideas she suggests are:

• Cook meals that can sit for a long time and doesn’t require staying back in the kitchen (for instance, slow cooker meals or meals that bake or simmer).

• Do a few things on the weekends to lessen the load during the week. Doing things like keeping outfits ready for the week or taking care of laundry can be a big help.
