Work-Life Balance: Why it Matters


The quest for balance is something that is often quite challenging in our modern world. The ever-available stream of information, ever-increasing financial demands, and the complexity of the world we live in make balance feel like an elusive concept.

I remember interviewing for a job in Washington D.C. I casually asked “what is the work life balance like here?” “Completely normal!” I was assured. Coming from Denver, I assumed “normal” meant people worked a 40-50 hour week, then went home to be with their families, pursue their hobbies, and get a little exercise in there.

After I accepted the job and started my new position, I soon discovered that “a normal balanced life” meant working 70- 80+hours a week, Monday-Sunday. Oh my. . .
