Work-Life Balance: Real or Fiction?

  • Workplace Wellness
Nov. 30, 2018

We’re happy to report that although unicorns are indeed magical, finding balance between your work life and your home life isn’t the fate of fairy tales. Kylie McLean, one of ASEBP’s workplace wellness liaisons, puts a spin on this old idea to show us how work-life balance can be a tangible thing. We know that there will always be an ebb and flow to our lives as we take on workplace and personal responsibilities, successes, challenges and everything in between. So let’s reframe our language and call this work-life harmony instead. Understanding that there will be busy times and those when we can relax and sink into a good project at work or conversation with a colleague, is the key. It’s all about how we manage the ebbs and flows. Read on to learn some real ways to welcome work-life harmony into your workplace.
