Finding balance between work and personal life

Written by Karen Fukuhara on Fri Jun 14 2024

Hey everyone,

Finding balance between work and personal life is something that I think about a lot. As an actress, my schedule can get pretty hectic with long hours on set and constant travel for press events. But at the same time, I value my relationships with friends and family deeply.

It's important to me to make sure that I'm present in both aspects of my life - work and personal. When I'm on set filming for The Boys or doing interviews for a new project, it can be easy to get caught up in the excitement of it all. But I always remind myself to take breaks when needed and check in with myself emotionally.

On the flip side, when I have downtime away from work, I try to fully immerse myself in spending quality time with loved ones. Whether it's having dinner with friends or going on a hike with family members, these moments are precious to me.

One thing that helps me find balance is setting boundaries. It's okay to say no sometimes and prioritize self-care over external obligations. This could mean turning down social events if you need some alone time or taking a mental health day off from work.

Another key aspect of finding balance is staying organized. By planning out my week ahead of time and prioritizing tasks based on importance, I can ensure that both work commitments and personal activities are given proper attention.

At the end of the day, finding balance between work and personal life is an ongoing journey filled with ups and downs. It's about recognizing what brings you joy and fulfillment in each aspect of your life while also knowing when it's necessary to step back for self-care.

I hope this reflection resonates with some of you who may be struggling to find equilibrium amidst busy schedules or conflicting priorities. Remember that taking care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally is crucial in maintaining overall well-being.

Wishing you all peace, Karen Fukuhara
