The Stress Advantage

One of the biggest conundrums of modern living is the volume of choices we have available to us and finding balance in life can be challenging. The term work-home balance is often referred to in terms of people engagement in the workplace and is a hotbed of discussion when seeking ways to reduce sickness absenteeism.

We believe that 'life balance' is a much more appropriate term than 'work-home balance' as work is, afterall, an integral part of our lives as are our homes, relationships and personal ambitions.

Many people spend more time at work than at home and more time with work colleagues than with friends and family, so work is a huge part of their lives.

It is therefore more important than ever for people learn to manage their lives so that they create a better balance and reduce unnecessary stress. This will in turn promote better long-term health and wellbeing in all areas of life.
