Poll: How Do You Achieve Work-Life Balance? Is It Possible?

They say life is a balancing act. I genuinely never understood that reference until I started working. How on Earth are we expected to master work-life, have an active social lifestyle, foster meaningful relationships, and don’t even get me started how you’re supposed to do all that with a family. Seriously, adulting is challenging. No wonder so many of us are feeling the flames of burnout.

Some people believe achieving a work-life balance is a myth. No one can find the perfect balance. Do you agree? I think some people have mastered the art of having it all figured out. Care to share your secret?

Define What Work-Life Balance Means to You

Before you even attempt to master the work-life balance dilemma, you must define it under your terms. To some, it’s all about having time for their family and friends. To others, it boils down to more time to pursue their ambitions. To you? Well, I can’t answer that question in your name.

Not to mention, the term “work-life balance” has seen quite the evolution across generations. For Baby Boomers, work-life balance wasn’t a big issue. Once Gen X came to the scene, prioritizing time with family and using vacation days was a way of practicing work-life balance. Then, Millennials are not about perks or vacation days. Instead, they’re all about finding a career path that fits their lifestyle.

Is It Possible to Achieve Work-Life Balance?

In a nutshell, no. However, we can achieve something called harmony in all aspects of our lives. One study found that top performers in business achieve happiness in all dimensions of their lives. That’s by acknowledging that while not everything can be perfectly balanced, each chaotic aspect of their lives can be in harmony with each other.
