Have you got the right work life balance?

Work life balance is important. If you throw everything in to your work you may find that you are not satisfied in your life. You may find it hard to keep a relationship, miss out on social events and feel you don’t have time to start a family. On the other hand if you don’t put enough in to your work you may find that you get in to trouble at work, don’t progress up the careers ladder and don’t get any fulfilment out of your job.

It is vital that you get this balance right, but there is no exact percentage as to what is the correct balance it all depends on the type of person you are and what job role you are in. For example, a teacher may have to be happy to allow their job to come in to their home life at times as it is likely they will have to do marking or planning at home. A shop worker may not have the option to take their work home so they may be swaying more towards what makes them happy in their personal life. If you feel you are either struggling at work or in your personal life, have a look at your work life balance and see if it needs to be adjusted.
