Work–Life Balance

Love it or hate it, work is a huge part of life. It probably takes up more of your waking time than any other single activity and is a big part of your identity. Nevertheless, it is still only one part of your life and who you are. Whether your job is a vocation you’re deeply passionate about or just something you do to pay the bills, it's important not to let it take over your life. Read on for advice and information to help you keep a healthy balance and distance between work, rest and play.
