A Woman's Perspective on Work-from-Home

Updated: Mar 4

Hey Parents,

In recent years, the concept of working from home has transitioned from a mere fantasy dream to the new norm, particularly for women. However, this shift has shed light on some harsh realities, as highlighted in a recent study discussed by LinkedIn News India. The study reveals that women are increasingly becoming victims of the Double Burden Syndrome. While remote work offers more flexibility, experts note that it has imposed additional challenges on women, who often find themselves as primary caregivers, juggling both personal and professional commitments.

When we step out to work, there's a certain degree of separation that allows us to focus on our professional tasks. However, when working from home, we are constantly reminded of our family's needs, alongside the expectations of other family members. It's no surprise that many women are dropping out of the workforce due to these mounting pressures.

Amidst the chaos of managing multiple responsibilities, attempting to concentrate on one task feels akin to searching for a needle in a haystack. However, I've learned that finding the right approach can make all the difference. Instead of trying to tackle everything simultaneously, it's essential to focus on one issue at a time. By brainstorming multiple approaches, celebrating small victories, and progressing step by step, we can alleviate some of the stress and overwhelm.

Moreover, mastering the art of expressing our emotions to our family members can significantly impact our well-being. While it may seem daunting to communicate our feelings, it's crucial to remember that they won't understand unless we make an effort to express ourselves clearly. By shifting our mindset from "they won't understand" to "I need to express myself so that they understand," we empower ourselves to foster understanding and support within our families.

At Crink, we recognize the challenges faced by women in balancing work and family responsibilities. That's why our parenting sessions and time management strategies are designed to help women navigate their roles systematically, allowing them to pursue their ambitions while managing the complexities of family life.

In conclusion, the rise of work-from-home arrangements has brought both opportunities and challenges for women. By adopting a strategic approach, focusing on one task at a time, and effectively communicating our needs, we can strive for a more balanced and fulfilling life, both personally and professionally.

With love,
