Work-Life Balance


What is work-life balance? “Work-life balance is the lack of opposition between work and other life roles. It is the state of equilibrium in which demands of personal life, professional life, and family life are equal”.
How important is it to achieve a work-life balance? Harmonizing your work and life is important for retaining good health, and increasing your yield and satisfaction at work. Many of us in this competitive corporate culture tend to lead very unbalanced lives.
