Work life balance: What is it? Can anyone obtain it? Who are you people?
Work life balance is “a concept including proper prioritizing between “work” (career and ambition) and “lifestyle” (health, pleasure, leisure, family and spiritual development/meditation),” according to WikiPedia. The ratios of work and life vary from person to person, and will fluctuate for each individual thought his life. Ultimately, a life lived in-balance is a life of fulfillment–and hopefully–enjoyment.
The Work Life Balance Protection Agency is a group of people who address various issues of work and lifestyle. Sometimes, the writers address areas that are out-of-balance for themselves; sometimes, the writers share their expertise on areas that may be out of balance for you. We want you to laugh a little, think about things from a new perspective, and be motivated to create your own balance.
You are the designer of your own life–let us help you make the purposeful changes that will enable you to live the fulfilling and rewarding life you were meant to live.
