Work-Life balance is one of the most discussed subjects of 2014. Some say it is impossible, and some say it’s vital to the success of a business. Regardless, the first step to achieving it, is to understand what it is and how it helps.
What Is It Work-life balance is basically the positive relationship between work and other equally important activities in life which include family leisure, etc. The relationship can’t be clearly defined and varies from person to person according to their life demands. It’s important to notice the word, “relationship,” meaning that this is not a contest or a scale we must balance.
It’s an interaction of ideas that satisfie the needs in your individual life. Work and Life are not separate spheres. They are integrated moments in life that happen throughout the day. Also, the concept of work-life balance is not just associated with women or busy executives. It’s a process applicable to everyone to increase the level of employee workplace productivity and motivation.
