Despite the invention of so many modern conveniences aimed at saving us time, it seems in today’s society most of us in reality don’t have enough of it, and we’re busier and more stressed than ever. Leisure time can get so easily pushed out of the weekly schedule, and we don’t have a moment to reflect on what life’s really about, let alone dedicate enough time to our families, friends and hobbies.
Even worse, new technology means the office has come to us, forcing us on work alert for much of our waking lives. And with more possessions and clutter in our homes than ever before, even just maintaining a clean and comfortable household is a more difficult task than it used to be. And with the weight of modern expectations, and the bustle and pressure of Christmas adding to mix, it’s no wonder most of us end the year as frazzled as can be!
But as we move into a new year and a new decade, we arrive at the perfect time to take stock, reflect and throw out bad habits. Household management and life balance are always at the top of the list, and this is where Family Space can help, with our flexible childcare and cleaning solutions.
Some life problems are harder to solve and some resolutions are more challenging to keep than others, but giving yourself the gift of time is for most a no-brainer. Outsourcing some (or as many as you want!) of the childcare and domestic tasks as a priority will also help you to have time back to fully reflect on what it is you want out of the year ahead.
Maybe you’re a figure of peak organisation and perfect household zen, then good for you! But in a world where we have more possessions than we could possibly need and gift giving during the festive period becomes increasingly more challenging, why not offer the gift of time to a loved one or friend, even if it’s just a couple of hours help with the ironing each week, or an evening’s babysitting to allow an all-too-rare date night? The gift of extra time is a hard present to beat!

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of our customers and staff!
