Model career VS Personal life – “You were not put on this earth to work hard to pay bills”. So true. This is the reason why we chose the modeling career, but at the same time we have to assume certain responsibilities. We cannot let our personal life, especially our love life, have an influence on our modeling career.I have often seen this problem with different models, their love life leave its mark on their work and the fact that they are not in a normal emotional condition can be seen, both on the camera and in the “wallet“.
How to Find Work-Life Balance
⦁ Communicate: If you feel overwhelmed with your workload, be upfront with your supervisor or instructors. If your boyfriend or family members are disrupting your schedule, express your needs to those around you. Clear communication can lead to effective. Especially in this industry, communication between you and the team behind you is very important. Don’t let the accumulation of problems affect your career.When there is no communication, frustrations build up and you can reach the point where you explode emotionally and unload on the people who only want to help you.
⦁ Establish a Routine: It’s important to know your priorities and how to manage situations in a way that you can make a balance between your personal and professional life. As a model, sleep has an essential role in the evolution of your career. When you’re not rested, problems have a bigger impact and your reaction to a small problem is stronger.
Take care of your body and soul.
When creating a schedule that works for you, think about the best way to achieve balance at work and in your personal life. Chancey said that work-life balance is less about dividing the hours in your day evenly between work and personal life and, instead, is more about having the flexibility to get things done in your professional life while still having time and energy to enjoy your personal life. There may be some days where you work longer hours so you have time later in the week to enjoy other activities. Your overall physical, emotional and mental health should be your main concern. If you struggle with anxiety or depression and think therapy would benefit you, fit those sessions into your schedule, even if you have to leave work early. In the adult industry it’s also much easier to forget about your problems from home because you interact with many people during work hours and it’s also a good method to overcome difficult moments. But, I repeat, it’s essential not to let the difficulties in your personal life, especially the love life, affect you at work.
Balance is the most important thing in this career. Sometimes, truly unplugging means taking vacation time and shutting work completely off for a while. Whether your vacation consists of a one-day staycation or a two-week trip to Bali, it’s important to take time off to physically and mentally recharge.
Regardless of the problems you face in your personal life, you cannot let it lead to your degradation as a model. Your priority is to yield and remain emotionally stable. Even if love problems overwhelm you, you must understand that working as a model is the same as any other job, but you are the star, also the most important person.
The life of a model is like that of a rockstar.
You must understand that all the work you do is only for your benefit and for your development. Last but not least, don’t forget to shine! Like every rockstar you have two parallel lives. One where you are in the center of attention and everyone works as a team so that you and your show go well, and the other one as a normal person. Being a model is a very demanding job, it demands every minute to perfect. Most of the people think that models are having all the time a special life. No, we didn’t go to after parties, drink, or do drugs, or white around. Most of us had families and responsabilities. It’s all about balance and control.
In the end, but not at least, you have to take control of your life and to understand that YOU are the most important person in your life and the only one who can manage the intire situation. You have to find the balance between personal and professional life and also the best tips and tricks to make your life easier.
