-- Involve your kids: You can involve them in your business if your kids are old enough. You can give them some responsibilities as per their comfort and see how they perform. This will help you spend more time with them and also help them broaden their perspective from an early age.

-- Plan some rewards for yourself: Positive reinforcements always work as an excellent motivation to work. So, plan something special for yourself - a day at the spa, some shopping day, a nice meal, etc., whenever you accomplish a task.

-- One thing at a time: Do not try to take on a lot of tasks simultaneously. Get to one thing and give your best. Indulging in many things simultaneously might affect productivity as a whole.

All these tips will help you keep a work-life balance and help you run your business more efficiently.
