Personally, I feel that it is important to distinguish between some people looking for balance as in equal parts, and others looking for balance as a whole.
I don’t feel that balance in equal parts is right for me, because I could never (and neither do I want to), have an equal amount of work and an equal amount of play (or ‘life’ outside of work).
My preference is to think of life as a whole, and get comfortable with how I spend my time – whether that be working or doing things outside of work.
For me, work is a big part of my life, and the lines between work and play are often blurred – and that is OK as long as I live to my life’s purpose.
As recent as 2014, four in ten people felt that their work/life balance was deteriorating.
This is not surprising given the demands on our time, social media and sometimes being on call 24/7 – but there are some things you can do to help gain control over that balance.
Over the next three blog posts I’m going to share three BIG tips on the concept of work/life balance and how you can achieve it.
I hope you will tune in…
