People often have problems balancing life and work. Working long hours, even when we enjoy what we do, is proven to damage our health; this also means that ‘our labour can’t reproduce itself’. Put simply, we have no time to rest and we have no time to brush up on, and develop new, knowledge and skills.
Conversely, when we don’t work enough life and having fun can become hard work.
Resolving the balance between your life and your work by work becoming your life is probably the wrong way to go. Why not try to make life your work?
