Work Life Balance

How strong is your work/life balance? [Quiz]

The busier we get, the harder it is to draw a line between work, school, and personal time, especially when we can check our emails at the grocery store, write our college essays on our morning commute, and attend virtual meetings while on vacation. Although technology has allowed for a lot of flexibility in the workplace, 70% of workers also admit that it brings work into their personal lives.

Where do you fall on the work/life balance spectrum? Are you an expert at juggling all of the curve balls that life throws at you? Or are you struggling to keep your head above water? Take this work/life balance quiz to find out.


The Benefits of a Balanced Life

Creating balance between work, school, and life enables you to focus on many different areas of your well being without letting one area overwhelm you and pull you down. A balanced life promotes productivity while it embraces personal growth and healthy living. The benefits of a balanced lifestyle are numerous and include:

  • Reduced stress levels
  • Improved job satisfaction
  • A deeper involvement in your education
  • A stronger connection with friends and family
  • Improved health

Balancing your commitments teaches you that it is equally important to make time for your family, pursuing personal goals and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It also means setting aside time to pursue your education and reach your professional goals.

Working Together to Create Balance

Once upon a time, individuals who wanted to succeed professionally or pursue a college degree had to sacrifice everything to make it happen. That included family, health, and even sleep.

Today, companies strive to take proactive roles in the health of their employees, and many organizations place heavy emphases on promoting positive of work/life balance. When employees are provided with the tools they need to achieve personal and professional success, both the workers and their companies come out on top. The same goes for higher education. Colleges and universities are adapting to serve the needs of students with busy lifestyles to provide flexible educational options that actively promote balance in their students’ lives.
