Work-life balance is the relationship between your work and the rest of your life. It’s not just about achieving an equal balance between both areas, it's more complex than that. The right balance for you may favour one area of your life over the other, which may change over time or depend on what stage you’re at in life. For example, if you're a parent of a young child or children, you might prefer to limit your working hours so that you're able to spend more time at home – and the situation may change as they become older.
Work-life balance means different things to each of us, so it’s hard to generalise about what the ‘right’ balance is. It really depends on you finding how best your work commitments and your lifestyle fit together.
