What Is Work-Life Balance?

Work-life balance refers to the equilibrium between the time and effort you devote to your job and the time you spend on personal activities, relationships, and self-care. Achieving this balance is not about splitting your time equally; rather, it’s about finding a harmony that allows you to excel in your career while enjoying a fulfilling personal life.

    It contributes to an overall sense of well-being, leading to greater happiness and life satisfaction.

  3. Enhanced Productivity:

    A balanced life often leads to increased productivity and better performance at work.

    Quality time spent with loved ones can strengthen relationships and create lasting memories.
