On Work/Life Balance

Back in January, the SMW Career channel’s Ask the Experts column answered a question about work/life balance.

That question has several variations. But, for most SMW readers, the bottom-line struggle is basically the same: Successfully integrating the various aspects of work and life can be extremely challenging–and that’s when times are good.

Add a difficult economic environment, one where working more for less has become the norm and, well, work/life balance often goes by the wayside.

Yet, in stressful times like these, experts say it’s even more critical to maintain healthy lifestyle habits, take time to relax, and nurture important relationships.

Sure, career and money matters remain important, but don’t lose sight of the fact that they’re only part of your life’s equation.
