I’m happy to say that Focus on the Family has been ahead of the technology curve, which has allowed most of our staff to work from home and continue to minister to families. But just like you, our staff has had to navigate the uncertain waters of balancing work and home.
That’s why we invited popular guest Arlene Pellicane to join us on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Balancing Work and Family Life While Staying at Home.” She’s got some great ideas for dealing with what she calls a “blurred environment.” The boundaries between work and family blur, which makes it harder to keep all the plates spinning – to be a good spouse, a good parent, perhaps even a good son or daughter to elderly parents.
She’s sharing how to manage screen time, differentiate between work and play, and disconnect from distractions and connect to those you love with good HABITs:
- H – Hold down the off button.
- A – Always put people first.
- B – Brush daily (live with a clean conscience).
- I – “I will go online with purpose.”
- T – “Take a hike.”
Arlene Pellicane will help you make your time working from home a positive adventure instead of a negative one. Join us on your local radio station, online, on Apple Podcasts, via Google Podcasts, or on our free phone app.
We’re talking with Arlene about ideas in her book Calm, Cool, and Connected: 5 Digital Habits for a More Balanced Life. We’ll send you a copy for a gift of any amount. If you can’t afford it, we’ll still make it available to you and trust that others to take care of us financially for doing so. Visit our website for more information.
