Work – Home – Life Balance

27 Oct

In a recent conversation regarding finding the balance between personal and professional lives, it seemed clear many people understand the issue, but do not fully comprehend how much these two elements influence each other.

There is not a wall between job and family. Here is a brief review of what is known about the job-family intersection. The six primary findings:

1. Behaviors at work are repeated at home.

2. Moods/emotions carry over from work to home and home to work.

3. Work affects status, self-concept and well-being.

4. Work patterns are related to parenting practices.

5. Work takes time, energy and involvement.

6. Work is inherently stressful and insecure.
