A Resolution to Relax, Renew and Restore
With the everyday challenge of juggling the constant demands of home, family and career, small changes can help make a significant impact on today's busy woman's life. According to a recent survey conducted on behalf of Kimberly-Clark, over a quarter of women admit that they struggle to keep their home organized (although 64% believe it's an attainable goal) and nearly half say that finding balance in life is an ongoing challenge.
What's more, a majority of women agree that they would like more time to enjoy the things in life that bring them joy and happiness, including spending time with family (82%) and friends (42%). In fact, women surveyed noted that spending time with family (16%) is among the top New Year's resolutions that are kept, while personal time (4%) and home organization (10%) often fall by the wayside.
