Creating a Work-Life Balance

22 NOV 2013

A recent blog post on the Academy of Learning College blog examines finding balance in a work and life. Amongst some of the issues that are relevant to finding balance is the idea of choosing to remove ourselves from the constant demands of technology.

…increased technological connection means that there has to be a conscious effort to un-plug and unwind.

The blog post, Creating a Work-Life Balance , goes on to suggest that creating balance is a conscious choice that comes from within. We need to take the time to discover what works best to create our own personal balance and that it might take time to discover what works best with our lifestyle.

Creating a balance between your work and home life is a personal decision as it varies from person to person.  What works for one person may not work for you, so it may take some flexibility in your initial goal to create balance if it doesn’t work at first. Though work demands will always be constant, the most important aspect in keeping everything balanced is to leave work at work at the end of the day. Even if you are a business student and aspire to enter the corporate world, try not to lose sight of leaving work at work.

Lastly, anyone can benefit from taking the time to plan and accomplish daily goals. It is key in feeling productive, rather than just trying to fit in everything and ending up feeling overwhelmed at the end of the day.
