One of the keys to productivity is a good work-life balance. Whether fresh out of university or only a few years into the world of work, young workers consisting of Gen Zs and the latter half of millennials should be able to have a good work-life balance.
According to Wikipedia, “Work–life balance is the balance that an individual needs between time allocated for work and other aspects of life. Areas of life other than work–life can be, but are not limited to, personal interests, family and social or leisure activities.”
Our desire to succeed professionally can push us to set aside our own well-being, as work takes precedence over everything else in our lives. Creating a harmonious work-life balance is critical, though, to improve not only our physical, emotional and mental well-being, but it’s also important for our career.
The consequences of work-life imbalance which includes; burnout, stress, anxiety and depression can be averted by strategically choosing your work environment and activities that you engage in when not working.
