Balancing Work & Life

Starting from an early age, as most of you reading this blog, we begin working full-time. The Wife and I love our life in real estate and to be the best real estate agents we can be we take little breaks and see this great country. The perk of smart phones, tablets, laptops and hot spots is that they allow us to be available for our clients and by having a team agent cover the home front makes all the difference as we travel. We have learned some helpful tips in our work -life balance and think some are of useful benefit in adult lives.

We decided to start with our first (and favorite) - Go On Vacation. In any field of work we all need a vacation as it is necessary for ourselves, clients, employees, etc. We do better in life when we have some down time to relax and recharge. A good vacation allows one to take a breather and renew excitement for the work that allowed them to take the vacation in the first place. Now, vacations are usually far and few between so in the meantime, pick one day a week to take off - recharge and explore your own town, read a book, or kick back and take a nap. The key to a successful and relaxing while on vacation is (in our case) to have a reliable REALTOR® (or agent on your team) cover you while you’re away.

The hard part for most people is to put themselves first and realize that our own well being should be a priority. In an effort to do more for ourselves the Wife and I try to schedule one hour a day to do something for ourselves - to make this easier we started getting up a little earlier in the morning to enjoy our cup of coffee a little bit longer. A couple other tips we have found that help us is deciding on your business hours and expectations with your clients and employees, which can be a bit tricky, but worth the effort to re-evaluate. And, one of the hardest things in the work-life balance is to not be afraid to say no.

All of our tips are easier said then done, but with little adjustments here and there to find more time for yourself and your family will help you to be more productive and happier in the long run.

We have a few ideas to help kick off your break time:

Now through mid October the Wasatch Front is a great place for a drive or a hike to take in the beautiful Fall Foliage. It’s difficult to predict the exact dates of the leaves turning, because there are a number of factors involved. But a good gauge is to assume that the best fall foliage viewing season begins in the highest elevations is now and through early-October in most places.

Take a Halloween Cruise October 1 - October 31 at the CLAS Ropes Course - Provo. Enjoy a themed adventure riverboat ride on the Provo River as they cater to the young at heart so be ready for family friendly fun!

The Sundance Scenic Lift Full Moon Ride runs October 13 - October 15 at the Sundance Mountain Resort. For a truly unique experience, enjoy the Sundance lift ride by the light of the full moon. Be sure to bundle up as temperatures can become chilly at night in the mountains.

Park City is known for its award winning trail network that winds and turns through this beautiful area. Nestled in the Wasatch Mountains and only minutes away from Park City’s Main Street and Salt Lake City, are the communities of Pinebrook, Jeremy Ranch, and Summit Park. These subdivisions are nestled into the mountains and offer perfect single family home and condominium options for daily commuters and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

In addition to the out-the-door access to Flying Dog trail and other legendary Park City trail systems, these three communities fall within the boundaries of the award-winning Park City school district. As for amenities each has something great to offer.  Pinebrook is home to numerous restaurants like Billy Blanco's, yoga & running shops, a dry cleaner, a nail salon and grocery stores. Pinebrook also features its own private trail system, park, tennis courts and a wide array of entry, custom and luxury home options. Jeremy Ranch is known for spacious single family homes that are bathed in sunlight and feature dramatic views. This community also offers golfers easy access to its pristine, manicured full course where one can experience the only Arnold Palmer Signature course in Utah.
