Maintaining a Healthy Work/Life Balance – YES It Is Possible!
Achieving work life balance can be a daily challenge. The demands of today’s workplace, in addition to our responsibilities to family, friends, community, and to ourselves can often create imbalances in this juggling act. However, it is increasingly important that we strive to maintain some work/life balance and more importantly model for our clients how to create “balance” in their lives.
In this workshop, we will answer the following questions:
- What does work/life balance mean to you?
- What are some signs that your life is in balance:
- Out of balance? What can you do to create a more balanced life?
You will create your own individual definition of work/life balance; identify the causes of work/life stress; discover the various roles and responsibilities you have in your life and learn how to prioritize them; and, learn tips and techniques to help create better balance in your life. Come prepared to learn, listen, laugh and enlighten yourself and others!
