In today’s crazy, fast-paced world, many of us feel as though we’re always playing catch-up rather than enjoying the good things in life …
As fast as we get things done, new tasks pile up, and we always tend to over-estimate the amount of time we have available to complete these tasks.
We continuously strive to further our careers and achieve success but, in doing so, we end up taking on more and more work that has a negative effect on our work/life balance.
It may seem as though the more successful you are, the busier you tend to be and the more items are added to your to-do list!
You may end up working evenings and weekends, just to clear the backlog, and this means less time spent doing the things you love to do, with the people you enjoy being with the most.
My three children grew up with me being a divorced, working mum, who was continually juggling her business, household, finances and school events. Life wasn’t easy, especially as I didn’t have parents or any other relatives nearby who could be called upon.
Many of us assume that we need to make drastic changes to our habits and lifestyles to gain more time, but in reality, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, it’s just about having an extra pair of hands available to you when you’re busy, and that’s where Extra Help comes into its own.
Most of you will be aware of the difference Extra Help can make to elderly people who are living independently, but did you know we also offer help to new and working parents?
Our services extend far beyond the usual domestic cleaning; we can also help with meal preparation, school runs, looking after children while you work, helping out at parties, shopping, assisting with homework and much more! As well as parents, our reliable and trustworthy home-helpers also assist time-poor professionals, whether they need help with dog walking, cleaning, gardening, DIY or even preparing home-cooked, healthy meals for them upon their return from work.
Some of our professional clients also travel for work and call upon Extra Help to keep an eye on their houses while they’re away, ensuring their plants are watered, gardens are maintained, and everything is spick and span for when they get home.
Whichever category you fall into, all of our services are designed to remove those niggly chores and tasks, so you can regain more of the most valuable thing you possess – time.
If you’re undecided about the value of a home-helper, try asking yourself these questions:
1. Which fun activities would I like to be doing in my spare time?
2. What’s currently preventing me from doing them?
3. Which tasks would I like to eliminate from my daily routine?
4. What would my perfect day look like?
5. Who would I spend more time with if I had more time?
Just by asking yourself these questions, you may find that a simple call to Extra Help could provide you with an abundance of free time that will change your life for the better!
If you’d like to enjoy the good things in life and find out more about how Extra Help can improve your quality of life, please give us a call on 01604 532932 and let’s put you in touch with your local office.
