Working on life's balance

Working on life's balance - Opinion -

" Human beings know what we need. At our core, we understand what nourishes us. So why do we continue to undervalue the affluence of experience? Why do we put material affluence first all the time?

As it stands, whenever we think, talk or write about work-life balance, the first thing we address is work. Paid work still holds court. Paid work takes precedence. But the part requiring more balance and attention is the stuff of life, not work.

..reconsider the amount of the time we spend on supporting other people, strengthening our social networks and investing our energy in sustaining relationships and ourselves. "
