In order to maintain a balanced life, it's good for you to do something different to your normal routine during the week. For instance, if you run your own business, chances are that you spend most of your waking time either working at that business or thinking about it. You need to break that up with something that is completely different. You could pursue a hobby (not similar to your work) or do a course that's completely disimilar to your business. e.g. fencing, learning another language, cooking. Try to involve your wife and even your kids where you can so that everyone can have a break. Perhaps you could all go and do some kind of community service an hour or two a week, or attend a painting workshop, or go indoor rock climbing.
