Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance refers to how much of our time and energy we focus on our jobs and careers to the exclusion of other aspects of our life, such as family, friends, rest, spirituality, and health. A healthy work-life balance can look different person to person, but it should result in all of a person’s physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs consistently being met along with work goals and responsibilities. An unhealthy work-life balance can be the fault of an employee who is using career accomplishments or work focus to gain a sense of validation or distraction from other unmet needs in their life, or it can be the fault of employers who demand devotion to responsibilities at all personal costs. Finding a healthy work-life balance for yourself can be a slow process, and it can change over time. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
