Work life balance: have you lost focus?

By Petra on 26/10/2015 2375 Work-life balance

Do you feel satisfied with your life?In today’s day and age we feel like we need to ‘have it all’. Be able to balance a 40+ hour workweek, family life and exercise, and still keep a sound mental health. We are overachievers and society applauds us for it. Recent studies of the UK’s mental health foundation show that the more time you spend at work (30+ hours), the less happy you are. The pressure we put on ourselves is just unhealthy. We’re out of balance. Work is often the component that tips the scale.
