With so many adults working full time, it’s not surprising that many of us seek to balance work and life. Technology blurs the boundaries between work and home, leading to more work with fewer resources because employers see your availability as 24/7. Families of all shapes and sizes love and care for children and aging adults. Many people have homes and cars that require maintenance, and passions that need energy and creativity. There is a lot to balance …
In reality, work-life balance is a myth because it implies that your work and life are similar to neatly stacked boxes that offset one another on opposite ends of a seesaw. Instead, work and life constantly mix together depending on the day, responsibilities, schedule, season, stage of life … the list goes on.
How is your work-life mix? Are you work-life fit? Without intentionally focusing on your work-life mix, it’s likely you’re not fit. It’s easy to see how you might need rebalancing. Our workdays are long, so the trick is to mix daily wellbeing practices into our professional routines. Are you ready for more energy at home and at work and to feel accomplished?
