Read Time: 8 Minutes

Thanks to the feminist movement in the 1960s, we live in a world full of industrious women. With that comes constant tips on maximizing your time and efficiency while climbing the ladder in your nine to five. The working woman pushes to do it all and be great at it. Yet, another type of woman is on the rise, and even the busy woman can’t help but listen to the advice she has.

She sounds a lot like this: Let go of perfection; You can’t do it all; Save your energy; Self-care is essential, Make more time for yourself. Sound familiar? Of course! Many women want to gain back some of their femininity and that often that starts with working less and putting yourself first more. I am well-versed in taking on this subject since I transformed from the working woman to the sexy homemaker myself. The perks of my new lifestyle were just as rewarding as it was to reach a goal in my career, except it was all for me. I sympathize with the working woman, and I rejoice with the women who have found a path working less.

Here are 7 perks of women who don't work nine to fives:

1. They are More Likely to be Financially Literate

The working woman is usually so busy working for the money that she never properly learns how to manage, preserve, and grow her wealth. Having financial literacy is often the key to working less. No one knows better than a woman who desires to work less, that a dollar saved is a dollar earned. Moreover, a dollar working for you is time saved.

2. They Have More Time Develop Relationships

Relational skills are essential. They help us to build deep personal relationships with our peers and loved ones. Ms. Independent usually follows the mantra that she doesn’t need anybody; that she can get everything on her own. When you fill your spirit with this mindset, you often forget to build relationships and the skills it takes to develop them. The truth is we need people, and people need us. Developing a proficient knowledge in relational skills requires time to learn and practice the craft. The payback is so rewarding, but the kicker is, relational skills increase career success for the women who do work. As for women who work less, they tend to understand how to listen, communicate, seek, and offer help as needed, negotiate, and compromise. They relish the perks of more profound, meaningful relationships.

3. They Can Develop a Morning Thoughtful Routine

I remember vividly wrestling with my alarm clock every morning before work. I would begrudgingly hold out until I had just 30 minutes to be to my job. In hindsight, I should have taken this as a sign that something in my life needed to change. Sadly, this is a prevalent practice among working women. We women should be excited to get into our day. Morning routines are the best way to set the tone of your day, and the right method will have you vigorously enthusiastic.

Moreover, they create stability and a moment to evaluate your mood and needs. Today I know the significance of starting my day right. I designed my routine to make me feel successful first thing in the morning by forming good habits within it. Many women use morning routine strategically to grow in lots of areas in their life.

4. They Can Spend More Time Setting Intentions

5. They Don’t Have to Constantly Prove Their Value

As a woman in the male-dominated workforce, you frequently need to promote and prove your value and self-worth. While this may fair well in your work-life, it also comes with:

Comparison

When you are the top performer, it feels great, but when you’re not, you often feel defeated and inadequate even if this is not the case. Another problem with comparison is the judgment that grows with it. You start to see people as their flaws and achievements, even outside of work.

Competitiveness

Always having to be the best at everything robs you at being the best in skills you’ve already developed. Often, bringing something unique to a team is more rewarding than being the best at a particular task.

Unwarranted Pressure

When you’re always proving your worth, you start to place additional stress on your self to meet the high standards you set. Usually, these standards are nearly impossible to achieve when you want to meet them

I will let you in on a little secret; When I stopped promoting myself and let my excellence speak on its own, doors started to open, even in the workplace. I, and many women who don’t work, choose to be our authentic selves and let our blessings shine on their own.

6. They Bask In Things That Feed Their Spirit

Work, eat, entertainment, sleep is a cycle performed by too many women today. It is the most significant difference I see between women who prioritize work over those who don’t. I always emphasize that we are living two lives simultaneously. A physical one and a spiritual one. Women who work less find time to volunteer, grow in their faith, dance, cook, sing, paint, and even smile at the small details in life.

Moreover, they create stability and a moment to evaluate your mood and needs. Today I know the significance of starting my day right. I designed my routine to make me feel successful first thing in the morning by forming good habits within it. Many women use morning routine strategically to grow in lots of areas in their life.

7. They Can Pick Up Interesting Hobbies

I once made and sold homemade crochet bookmarks for a whole year, just for the fun of it! The money wasn’t consistent but I relished the time I spent making each bookmark. It fed my spirit and made me very happy. The profit was just a plus! I encourage all women to take up hobbies or develop skills outside of their primary vocation whether it’s painting, riding horses, or pole.

Listen, you are not less of a woman, whether you work a lot or not. These perks can be enjoyed by any woman, no matter where she is in her life. Remember, let go of perfection, you don’t have to do it all. Save your energy and make time for some essential self-care.
