Family life

Work-life balance

Examples

  • Stop working late or bringing some work at home;
  • Tidy up the house regularly;
  • Set aside a couple’s night or family day.

Here’s what the Dalai Lama answered a journalist who asked him how he could be so calm despite his tumultuous life :

- "When I eat, I eat; when I walk, I walk; and when I listen to a person, I listen to a person."

- Not satisfied with the answer, the journalist replied : "Well, so do I..."

- The Dalai Lama then said : "When you eat, you think; when you walk, you run; and when you listen to someone, you think about what you’ll answer next."

This anecdote really shows that « living in the present » can change the unpleasant feeling of always being overwhelmed. I wish you to fully live every moment of a work-life balance, just like the life YOU have chosen.
