Work-Life Balance

Work–life balance is the term used to describe the balance that an individual needs between time allocated for work and other aspects of life. Areas of life other than work-life can be, but not limited to personal interests, family and social or leisure activities. 

  • Work-life balance is a term used for the idea that you need time for both work and other aspects of life, whether those are family-related or personal interests. The saying goes that ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’.

    But work, or at least some kind of contributory effort, whether paid or voluntary, is often recognised as being important for personal satisfaction, so it seems likely that ‘all play’ would be dull too.


  • คนฉลาดและขยัน ควรส่งเสริมให้เป็นแม่ทัพ,
    คนฉลาดและขี้เกียจ ควรเลี้ยงไว้เป็นทหารฝ่ายเสนาธิการวางแผนอยู่เบื้องหลัง

    คนโง่และขี้เกียจเก็บไว้ใช้สอยทำงานตามคำสั่งก็พอไหว

    แต่ถ้าเจอคนโง่และขยัน ต้องเอาไปตัดหัวทิ้งทันทีเพราะจะทำให้งานเสีย และก่อความเดือดร้อนไม่รู้จบ


  • If there's one thing we all have in common, it's that we all make mistakes along the way (and hopefully learn valuable lessons from them). But if you're smart, you'll learn as much as possible from the mistakes of others and spare yourself some of the grief.


  • An hour's "brisk exercise" each day offsets the risks of early death linked to a desk-bound working life, scientists suggest. The analysis of data from more than a million people is part of a study of physical activity published in the Lancet to coincide with the Olympics. Watching TV was found to be worse than sitting at a desk, probably because of associated habits like snacking.

Areas of life other than work-life can be, but not limited to personal interests, family and social or leisure activities. The term ‘Work-Life Balance' is recent in origin, as it was first used in UK and US in the late 1970s and 1980s, respectively. More recently the term has drawn on some confusion; this is in part due to recent technological changes and advances that have made work and work objectives possible to be completed on a 24-hour cycle. The use of smartphones, email, video-chat, and other technological innovations has made it possible to work without having a typical "9 to 5 work day"
