5 rules for an efficient work-life balance

Fulltime-Job, wife and mother- I often get asked, how I handle everything at once. Personally, I don't think that I handle it differently to other women. All of us slip into different roles during our everyday life which we have to handle simultaneously. I follow a handful different rules to make my way filled with energy and joy.

Rule Number 1: Order is half the battle
The most important rule is organisation. Without it, my life as a full-time lifestyle mum would not be feasible and my dreams would still be castles in the air. My everyday life thrives on clear agreements. True to the motto "Keep it simple", however, things can remain down-to-earth: Our organisational tool is the smartphone calendar. In addition, everyone in our family has taken on tasks that contribute to our life. From teamwork in the household to accompanying us to shoots, we can always rely on each other.

Rule Number 2: Just do it!
Everybody knows it! For days, an unpleasant To-Do is waiting to be finally done. Instead of completing it and thereby, calming our nerves, we tend to focus on our laundry, the children's room and check our Instagram for the xth time. Yet, we know intuitively we cannot be satisfied until we finally finish the unpleasant task. My way out: no thinking just doing. In the beginning, it might be a little hard however, soon you realize the one and only way to solve procastination is: to just do it.

Rule Number 3: do things that matter!
Without spending real quality time, my batteries were always in sleep mode. For luxury moments, you always need to follow rules number 1 and 2: plan and do. No matter how full my calendar currently is, I always make room for me-time, time with my husband, and time with my children. All components are equally important for me. The partnership benefits from moments of pleasure alone and a happy marriage is good for family life.

Rule number 4: Let's talk!
It is as simple as it is true: talking and listening to each other makes life much easier. And this is not only true for exchanges with adults. Children also intuitively sense whether they are being taken seriously in a conversation. They cooperate in a completely different way when you meet them at eye level. I explained to Selma and Levi from the beginning that I work, what I do and how important this work is to me. That comes across very differently than just saying, "I can't right now."

Rule number 5: Go with the flow
What is behind this rule? The dance of life. Without a break, there is no creation. The more concentrated and inspired I work, the more creative I want to be, the more important regular time-outs are. By stopping now and then, I can look at projects from a distance and often come up with completely new ideas. Even if I'm not making any progress on an assignment, breaks have proven their worth. It is precisely by consciously letting go that a new dynamic emerges.

Five rules, five pillars. Cogs that mesh and ensure that the big picture succeeds. And for me, that would be being a fulfilled, passionate and mostly happy full-time lifestyle mom. The best part? With all that, I still have time for my very own Luxury Moments. Preferably in outfits that fit each of my roles perfectly.

Search engines
We use tracking methods from search engine providers to optimise our advertisements so that you can easily find our online shop in the standard search engines, even with relevant future search queries. For example, to determine the relevance of an advertisement, we record the categories that are interesting to the shop’s visitor, and whether an order was placed. These data are pseudonymised and transferred to the search engine providers. With your consent, data is transferred, if necessary, to a third country outside of the EU, which possibly has a lower level of data protection than that of the EU (pursuant to Article 49 para 1 p. 1 (a) EU GDPR).
Display
In order to be able to show you relevant advertising banners on external websites, we work together with display networks and service providers. To optimize advertisements, we use cookies and tracking methods that collect data about surfing behaviour, save that data in cookies and transfer the data, pseudonymised, to the technology providers. With your consent, data is transferred, if necessary, to a third country outside of the EU, which possibly has a lower level of data protection than that of the EU (pursuant to Article 49 para 1 p. 1 (a) EU GDPR).

With your consent, data is transferred, if necessary, to a third country outside of the EU, which possibly has a lower level of data protection than that of the EU (pursuant to Article 49 para 1 p. 1 (a) EU GDPR).
Affiliates
We work together with affiliate programmes and use their cookies and tracking methods so that you do not miss any exciting promotions and can benefit from bonus programmes. Affiliate programmes are the partner networks of individual website operators such as voucher portals, bonus programmes and bloggers. These technologies help us to determine if the advertisements introduced by the affiliates have generated an order. This benefits both you and the partners.

Retargeting
We work together with retargeting providers so that we can show you advertising banners on external websites with relevant products from our online shop which you may have been interested in, but which you have not yet purchased. In order to do so, transaction data from our website are recorded, e.g., items you have viewed or placed in your shopping cart. Please do not be surprised: If you decide against the collection of data for the purpose of retargeting, a new window will open which will take you to the website of our retargeting provider. In order to ensure that data will no longer be forwarded to the partners, please follow the instructions on their website and then save your details to conclude the process. With your consent, data is transferred, if necessary, to a third country outside of the EU, which possibly has a lower level of data protection than that of the EU (pursuant to Article 49 para 1 p. 1 (a) EU GDPR).
