The Seesaw of adult life: Work Life balance

Updated: Apr 19, 2023

Finding balance in life can be challenging, especially when it comes to balancing work and personal life. In today's fast-paced world, many people struggle with maintaining a healthy balance between the two. However, it is crucial to find a balance that works for you to avoid burnout, stress, and other negative consequences.




As a life coach, I have had the privilege of helping clients achieve a better work-life balance. From my experience, I have realized that it's not about finding a perfect balance between work and personal life. Instead, it's about finding what works for you and being intentional about it.


One of the first steps to achieving a work-life balance is setting priorities. We often get caught up in the daily routine of work, responding to emails, attending meetings, and meeting deadlines that we forget to prioritize other aspects of our lives. It is crucial to take some time to identify what matters most to you, both personally and professionally, and align your priorities accordingly.

Another crucial step to finding balance is setting boundaries. This means knowing when to say no and establishing clear limits between work and personal life. Many of us struggle with switching off from work, leading to burnout and stress. By setting boundaries, you can ensure that you have the time and energy to devote to your personal life.


Do you feel happy with your current work/life balance?

  • Yes!

  • Not really

  • Half/Half



It is also essential to take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally. This includes getting enough sleep, eating healthy, and taking breaks when necessary. We often neglect our well-being while trying to achieve our career goals, but this can lead to negative consequences in the long run.

Finally, it is essential to be flexible and adaptable. Work-life balance is not a one-size-fits-all solution. What works for one person may not work for another. Being open to change and adapting your routine accordingly can help you find a balance that works for you.


In conclusion, achieving a work-life balance is essential to maintaining a healthy and fulfilling life. It requires setting priorities, setting boundaries, taking care of yourself, and being flexible.
