That Thing Called Work-Life Balance

That Thing Called Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance is the idea that a fulfilling life outside of work helps improve work performance while reducing stress. The time a person spends working should be balanced by time spent with friends and family, keeping fit, traveling, and doing other fulfilling hobbies.

Why It Matters

With so many of us torn between juggling heavy workloads, managing relationships and family responsibilities, and squeezing in outside interests, it’s no surprise that more than one in four workers describe themselves as “super stressed”; that’s not balanced—or healthy.

Leadership Insights

What we see with many of our clients is 2 main reasons for not having a ‘Healthy” balance.

  1. Something is in their way of saying “no or stop” at work.
  2. They make a choice to focus on others or other things rather than themselves

Leadership Strategy

This month, take a look at your calendar or scheduling tool. Does it reflect an “In-balance” in your world, filled with meetings and work commitments and little to no time set aside for “you” activities.

Start adding “you” activities to your life and thus into your calendars and to do lists.

Make you a priority.
