September - Work Life Balance

Work Life Balance: Courtesy of Homewood Health

Work life balance is an individual measurement and may vary daily, monthly, and over extended periods of time. The right balance will differ as your lifestyle changes. 

Your needs and wants evolve throughout the various stages of life, from single life to being married, to the possible addition of children or new career aspirations, and to nearing retirement. There is no perfect formula or ideal balance. The right equation differs because each individual has different priorities, goals, and influences that shape our needs at home and at work.
