Good morning everyone! A lot of people talk about work-life balance! I like the concept of work work-life integration more!
Work-life integration means incorporating the different areas of your life (work, fun, family, exercise...) to create a whole picture. To me, It is a dynamic concept that will continually evolve and change as we go through different life stages... I do not agree with the concept of work-life balance because it means that we have to allocate the same weight to different areas of our lives (again family, work, fun, exercise...) to find an even distribution. But as our lives evolve, we may want to put more energy on family or work, depending on where we are at in life... The aim is to incorporate it all together to be happy where we are at and have inner peace! I wish everyone a fabulous Sunday! Dr. T
