In today’s fast paced world we find it difficult to take out time for our personal life which includes spending time with family, social activities or other personal interests. Most of us end up spending all of our time and energy fulfilling the commitments at work and are left with no time for our personal life. There is no doubt that it is necessary to have a strong and stable career and is desired by each individual for a comfortable life, however too much work pressure, frequently changing working hours can cause an imbalance in your overall Life.
Experts call this a poor Work–Life Balance which in turn causes stress, relationship difficulties, and health issues. It can greatly affect your focus on all aspects of your life including your focus at work leading to a bad working environment for yourself and your colleagues.
Let’s understand what a Work-Life Balance is; it’s the equal amount of time you allocate to your work (career) and to your personal life. It simply means that your focus in life is not just fulfilling career commitments but also to spend an equal amount of time with yourself and your loved ones, doing what you like, for example, playing an outdoor sport every morning or going to the gym before you go to work, watching a movie your kids or going for a family dinner. Fulfilling community commitments, like planting trees in your neighbourhood or feeding stray animals etc.
Poor work-life balance is caused due to prolonged working hours, unhealthy working environment, frequently changing working hours, work pressure etc. Some studies suggest that a poor work-life balance in your midlife can have adverse effects on your mental and physical health in the later part of your life. It can affect your mental and physical health causing depression, anxiety, heart disease, sleep deprivation, unhappiness at work and in your personal life etc.
