Make Sure You and Your Partner are on the Same Page
Going back into the workforce isn’t just going to affect your life, but also the lives of those around you. Talk to your spouse and make sure that you are both on the same page about how much you are going to work (full-time or part-time), who is going to get the kids out the door in the morning, who will put dinner on the table at night, and who will be in charge of which chores around the house. It’s important to have a strong support system and a clear task list for each member of the household so that each day as you head off to work you aren’t scrambling to figure out the logistics of how everyone is going to make it through the day. This will reduce your stress level and allow you to be more focused when you're at work and more relaxed with your family at home.
