Available for Interviews: Dr. Travis Parry

What Dr. Parry Can Say in an Interview on Work/Life Balance:

COVID has turned work/life balance on its head. Financial advisors have struggled with work/life balance before these challenging times—but now with working from home, hybrid work schedules, and working parents at home with kids learning online, it has been wildly exacerbated!

5 Tips to Establishing a Healthier Work/Life Balance

 1.  Stress/Emotional Management. Understanding the psychological components of what we can/cannot control and how to deal with these factors will help professionals to be able to separate work from home even if those boundaries are blurred with COVID.

2.  Creating Physical Boundaries. Have a home office/place that is separate from other home responsibilities. 

3.  Dressing the Part. Have sound protocols, wardrobe that helps you look and play the part.

4.  Family Support. Inform family of your work/home boundaries and ask them to support and help you to achieve these goals. Working at home with 8 people can be daunting but their support is crucial.

5.  Set Work Hours. Regardless of where you are working from (home, work, outside at a park bench) set boundaries for yourself and work those hours. Creating these boundaries will help you to stay productive.

What Dr. Parry Can Say in an Interview:
3 Strategies for Work-Life Balance in the “New Normal”: 

Pre-Pandemic the idea of work/life balance was beginning to see a revival with some calling it impossible and others confused by a modern definition. When Covid-19 came and businesses were closed, the work/life balance came front stage again. Parents (some both working) were now dealing with school closures and remodeling their working from home to include homeschooling. Now as the country’s schools and businesses reopened and a “new normal” in Work/Life Balance appeared. With Zoom calls, text messages, and laptops more prevalent than ever, will we all be returning to the old ways of achieving balance?
