Work-Life Balance: From Desk to Me-Time with Kerikit Leather Bags

In today's fast-paced world, achieving a healthy work-life balance has become a crucial goal for female professionals. Balancing the demands of a career with personal commitments, social engagements and often kids on top can be challenging, but it’s not impossible. In my pursuit to find a more stress-free life I found that if my day started organised it often stayed that way. However, if I wake up, trip over a kid's toy, step on a Lego brick or find the milk is off it can often take me till midday to get out of my bad mood!

Bringing order to chaos is one of my number 1 goals each day and I am proud that my bags do just that. Seamlessly transitioning from the work desk to precious me-time with no lost keys along the way!

In this blog, we show you how the allure of our leather bags is the perfect companion for busy female professionals, just like you and me, seeking that harmonious work-life balance. Along the way we will provide some helpful tips on how busy women, especially working mums can get closer to the perfect work-life equilibrium we desperately need.


 1. Prioritize Self-Care and Well-being:

It might sound obvious when you read this but work-life balance begins by prioritising your own self-care and well-being. As busy female professionals, we often tend to put others' needs ahead of our own, leading to burnout and fatigue and while most of us can see that it makes sense, actually doing it isa lot harder! I set aside time each day to engage in activities that rejuvenate and replenish me in some way. It could be a 20-minute walk at lunchtime to ease off my hip or an early start at the gym or yoga in the evening. Whatever it is, I book it in like a regular appointment, so I make sure time is set aside for it. Ensure that you make self-care a non-negotiable priority.

We understand the multifaceted needs of our tribe, busy mums, female professionals aka mum bosses and everything else in between because I am just the same!  Our leather laptop bags are meticulously designed to cater to the demands of both work and personal life, with added consideration for anything baby. With their timeless design and exquisite craftsmanship, all our bags double up as laptop bags and cater to the new and 2nd / 3rd and 4th time parents too. I wanted to create sleek and sophisticated silhouette’s which will effortlessly compliment your professional wardrobe as much as they will elevate the date night too.

2. How to Efficiently Manage Your Time:

Time management is crucial when striving for work-life balance. Start by setting clear boundaries between your work and personal life. Define specific working hours and strive to maintain them. Avoid overworking or bringing work home whenever possible. Embrace the power of delegation and learn to say "no" when your plate is full. By efficiently managing your time, you create space for personal activities, family time, and social engagements without compromising your professional responsibilities. I find my bullet journal is a game changer and I use mine daily. You can watch a YouTube video here where I show you a simple and effective way to set up your journal for success. Cover it in one of our gorgeous Vicki journal covers and you are good to go. Try and make time on a Sunday to plan your week ahead and you will start the week feeling more organised and in control of your life.


3. Embrace The Power Of Organisation:

Staying organised is a key element of maintaining a work-life balance. The Lennox handbag from Kerikit provides a great solution for female professionals who value convenience and practicality but also want to ensure they look super stylish too. With its thoughtfully designed compartments, you can effortlessly organise your work essentials such as a laptop, tablet, and documents. Utilise the designated pockets for your phone, keys, and wallet, ensuring easy access whenever you need them. This bag is so versatile you can wear it over the shoulder, across your body and even as a backpack! By embracing the power of organisation, you will feel less stressed and improve efficiency both at work and in your personal life; that’s got to be a good thing right?

4. Establish Clear Boundaries:

Creating a healthy work-life balance requires establishing clear boundaries in all areas of life. Communicate your needs and expectations with your colleagues, superiors, and loved ones. Set aside dedicated time for your personal life, whether it's spending quality time with your family, pursuing a hobby, or engaging in social activities. When you have clear boundaries in place, it becomes easier to switch from work mode to personal mode, allowing you to fully enjoy and be present in each aspect of your life.
