Work Life Balance

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Truer words have never been spoken in 2019.

With the cost of living rising, and disposable income becoming sparser, expectations and responsibilities at work remain more important than ever. One must find a way to excel to ensure that not only do they perform at a high level, but more importantly, that they still have a job come Monday morning.

With the added pressure and importance of a secure position within their respective company, many people within the North American workforce find themselves devoting more and more time to their professional life and sacrificing time spent with family and friends.

As with any position in the world, the more effort and time one puts in, comes a higher level of expectation from their employer. Need to stay late to finish that report? Have to come in early because you were rained out the prior day? People now a days have succumb to the mentality of “doing what you gotta do”.

I’m here today to tell you that this is a bad road to go down.

The website Roche.com has provided some simple tips to follow to ensure you have a healthy work-life balance.

As they have indicated, such tips like “prioritizing your time” or “managing your mind” have been popular choices in helping people overcome the long hours of their work week.

One particular tip that stood out to me was “Make your workspace work for you”. This tip focuses on creating an atmosphere at your workspace that is conducive to you and your working style. Items such as a comfortable chair or an ergonomic keyboard will allow you to reduce your downtime and thus cut back hours from your work week.

This, along with the various other tips will help put you on the road to a healthier work-life balance.
