Work-Life Balance

Create A Happy Career By Focusing On Your Work Life Balance

Balancing the demands of work and day to day life can be more challenging than we might first think.

Balancing the demands of work and day to day life can be more challenging than we might first think. It means prioritizing between “work” related matters such as career and ambition, on one hand and “life” related matters which consist of pleasure, leisure, family and spiritual development, on the other.
The expression “work-life balance” was first used in the late 1970’s to describe the balance between an individual’s work and personal life.  Since that time, the work place environment has changed dramatically: long-term employer loyalty and a “sense of corporate community” have virtually been eroded by a new culture based entirely on performance. It is a performance culture is ever demanding and expecting more and more from their employees, yet in return it offers little if any security.
It was predicted that technology would eliminate the majority of household chores and provide people with significant more time to enjoy leisure activities; yet many people ignore this option. Instead the fervour of consumerism means a greater demand for goods and services and hence a greater demand for income to fund this consumption.
As a result, many people around the world are experiencing not only work, but total life burnout due to a developing cultural expectation of overwork and increased levels of stress. This condition is common in almost all occupations: from blue collar workers to upper management.
As the world accelerates towards globalisation, more and more people consider their work hours to be excessive and out of balance, these difficult and exhausting conditions are having adverse effects.

Fortunately, this topic can be significantly improved with hypnotherapy and clinical hypnosis.
