Finding the Balance Between Work and Life

Finding the Balance Between Work and Life

Today, we live in an increasingly work-oriented society.  Longer work weeks, less downtime, and higher levels of career dedication are all characteristic of this working age.  While this work ethic may have contributed to a more productive economy, it can be stressful, leaving workers wondering how to find a balance between their personal lives and their work lives.

In an article from Business Insider, several executives weigh in on the challenges of maintaining a healthy balance between work and life.  The results are somewhat surprising.  Almost unanimously, the business titans interviewed for the article agree that it is unhealthy to devote too much time to work.  Many of them cite the mental and health benefits of putting aside the stresses of work to focus on spending time resting, or with friends and family.  While it can be difficult to find this time, cost-benefit analyses are often effective for determining which parts of work and personal life can be sacrificed.

At the same time, a recent phenomenon has been occurring in today's modern economy:  an integration between work and personal life.  Many people these days find that they are taking their work home with them, conducting important calls and meetings during the weekend or while on vacation.  This doesn't necessarily need to be a bad thing, since it encourages a more informal attitude towards work life, helping employees feel more relaxed and less stressed.

It is important for any business to encourage a healthy balance and integration between the work and personal lives of its employees.  At ModernHR, we are a team of proud specialists, providing Human Resources solutions for our many clients and customers.  We understand that your employees are important to you.  That is why we are happy to provide unbeatable services to ensure that your employees are able to find that balance.   Contact us today to find out more.
