On the way to happiness you need to reach your objective. And this objective can be reached by having work-life balance. Sounds simple at first glance.
From a scientific standpoint, however, this is not a uniform phenomenon but an entire subject area with one central question: How do my occupational life and personal life relate to each other and how do they interact?
The »work« component usually refers to gainful employment, the »life« component to other areas of life such as family, friendships, health behavior, volunteer work etc.
The 4 areas that make up your balance of life:
- Body & health: nutrition, rest, relaxation, fitness, life expectancy
- Work & accomplishment: occupation, money, success, career, wealth, prosperity
- Family & contacts: friends, affection, appreciation
