LET’S GET SERIOUS ABOUT LEISURE AND WORK:

FINDING THE WORK-LIFE BALANCE Surprisingly, research into the interactions between our work and our broader lives often isn’t about balance at all. While general discussions around this topic often use the phrase “work-life balance”, most individuals experience a dynamic and changing interaction between their work and home lives. It cannot be reduced to a simple “balance” image like a see-saw or pair of scales. Factors such as life stage, working conditions, the supportiveness of supervisors, etc are all in the mix.
