Do you live to work, or work to live? Work is a necessary evil, but if you can get the right balance between work and your life, the journey can be more rewarding for you.
Work-life balance is the relationship between your work and the other important things in your life, like your family, sport and social life, household chores, volunteer commitments and so on. If you feel like you have enough time for all of these things in your life, you probably have a good work-life balance.
