Work-Life Balance

Balancing work and life has become one of society’s greatest challenges. You struggle to find a happy medium, only to discover that you’re working 12-hour days and missing your kids’ soccer games. Your sense of responsibility in the office is admirable, but what about spending time with your family and friends? How do you establish your priorities without shortchanging someone or something?

While there are no easy answers, getAbstract can help you sort through your options and make intelligent decisions. Our team of expert writers extracts only the most pertinent information from the most popular books in circulation. You’ll find plenty of work-life balance tips that are easy to implement.

Feeling the Heat

In a difficult economy in which downsizing and restructuring are prevalent, many employees feel they must hyperfocus on their jobs, including volunteering to stay late or taking on added responsibilities. Unfortunately, that can create added stress, which, in some cases, can pose a health risk. At the very least, an overworked employee may lose the ability to maintain a proper work-life balance. A great deal of material in getAbstract’s comprehensive library addresses this core issue and offers sensible compromises.

Focusing on Priorities

Striking a reasonable balance between work and life means re-examining your priorities and applying time management skills. Learn to delegate the less important tasks. And remember that you don’t have to say yes to every request. It’s just a matter of allowing getAbstract to guide you on your path to a healthier lifestyle.
