H is for habitsH is for habits

Or should I say, changing habits. Once you have a child, you quickly realize that everything in your life has changed. You can no longer follow the schedule you used to have—which means changing your habits in both work and home life. I will say this was an interesting adjustment for me as I was accustomed to putting a lot of hours into my business, along with a very free-flowing schedule. Now, I often work around daycare drop-offs/pickups and other obligations that don’t allow me to work late. But you know what, that’s a good thing…

How have you changed your work habits since kids came along?

    I don’t have kids Lidia but I’ve got six dogs. I still remember those days before the dogs when I worked when I wanted too. Sometimes I sat down to work first thing in the morning and worked through the day. Then the dogs came along and now most of my day and work revolves around their schedule. It’s a toughie but so worth it. 🙂

    Having both, I can say that dogs are a lot like kids… needing constant attention and following their routines. Before my son came along, I loved the fact that my dog encouraged me to get out of the house. After my son was born, the 3 of us continued taking long walks. Which inspired me to start my Typography in the City blog… but that’s another story (and yesterday’s blog topic!)
