Work, life where is the balance? Part Three

Hi there.

If you find yourself thinking about work-life balance, then chances are you don’t have work-life balance. So what is the solution? Well, how long is a piece of string? There is not one solution because we are all different.

This week I thought I would re-visit this important area as last year I wrote about work-life balance in two  articles:

https://wordpress.com/post/pmnoblewrites.wordpress.com/142  Part One

and

https://wordpress.com/post/pmnoblewrites.wordpress.com/149 Part Two.

I tried to make simple suggestions to redress the balance, yet twelve months on, we as a nation still struggle with this issue.

If you don’t believe me, have a look at this article  Work Life Balance  by businessculture.org which seems to be aimed at those who wish to live and work in the UK. It still makes interesting reading. See, – http://businessculture.org/northern-europe/uk-business-culture/ukwork-life-balance/. 

You may not have time to read this or any other articles on this subject for that matter. However, I hope that you spare a few moments to stop and reassess where you are and make some changes.

The Mental Health Foundation lays out some helpful ways to recognise and combat stress-related concerns.  See, https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/a-to-z/w/work-life-balance.

If you want some further reading ,the Government has published  its findings in the fourth of its research projects into work-life balance. See, https://goo.gl/pKnR62.

This has been a brief look at a subject matter which deserves more time, so will be re-visited in the future.

Thanks for reading.

Take care

Tricia
