Watch work life balance

Work-life balance is where your commitments to your job and your home life meet. On one side of the balance is the time and effort you give to your work. On the other side is the time you have to yourself to spend with friends and family or do things you enjoy.

For some people, the two collide and finding the balance can be challenging.

Working long hours to get more done eats into your personal time and can leave you feeling stressed and not in control. You may feel dissatisfied with your situation and begin to enjoy work less. This can affect how productive you are and make the situation worse.
