Welcome to August! So, this month, we’re looking at Work-Life Balance. Do you think it is truly possible to find balance between work and life? Work-life balance is defined as proper prioritizing between “work” (as in your career and ambition) and “life” (your health, your pleasure, leisure, and family time.) Is it really possible to find balance between these things?

I think it feels like we are at work way too much, but really, there are 168 hours in a week, if you sleep for 8 hours a night, that’s 56 hours gone. If you work for 50 hours a week, that’s 10-hour days, quite long, right? So, we still have around 62 hours of “free time.” However, for me, I never feel like I am truly not working because I am always connected to my smartphone!

How about you? Do you feel like you have truly achieved work-life balance? If not, is one problem the fact that you are on your smartphone too much?
