Work- Life Balance is a an essential part of life. It is important to learn how to balance professional and personal paths of our lives. Our life has become really hectic. Everyday there is a struggle to achieve something new and different. In this fast life we often forget how to strike a balance between our personal and professional lives. We often neglect our one front. It is often witnessed when we are stressed or we have too much of work pressure we often react through anger and frustrations at our home with our families. However we should learn how to respect them. We should learn how to remain calm & composed during work pressure. We should understand if we neglect one front , we'll have to compromise on that forever. Therefore it is important to learn how to strike a fine balance between our professional and personal life.

Part of the reason why the employees get stressed and burnout more frequently, now a days in relation to a few years back is that the competition is increasing. It has become a norm to be an individual dedicated to the duties of the work. Employees spend more time at the place of work, and often work late to meet the expectations of the organization, superiors and colleagues. What you can do to work efficiently is take small breaks, prioritize and schedule the tasks that you have to do during your day. However it falls on the organization to create a culture which promotes a healthy balance between work and personal life, employees to a large extent can only conform or protest.

Gallup world wide employee satisfaction research reveals an interesting fact. In most of the cases engaged employees don not complain about work life balance. Passion for work keep charging us and not let's feel drained. One must give adequate attention an care to her family members. One must find some time and place for own health and hobbies. However, seemlessly remained engaged on both professional& personal front needs recogntion of the fact that work&life are two sides of same coin.

As with most things in life, moderation is the key. People who are constantly tied to their jobs deal with the symptoms of stress and burnout. Overworked employees are more likely to suffer health problems, more like to be absent and/or sick, less efficient, less sociable, and overall more difficult to work with. It is in the best interest of both the employee and employer to avoid these pitfalls through smart human resource management.

This is becoming actually a major issue, relationship crisis or less productive at work etc , these are the factors which are continuously degrading the culture. To balance this, many organization have taken serious steps.
One company in Austria to enact this, after 6 PM all tables and chairs of the office will stick to the ceiling and you are not allowed to work, you can do yoga or any activities but not work. Some companies has penalty system that if you are working late, you are penalized. Many other big organizations have allowed employees to go on date, keeping pets at office, shopping vouchers etc to keep them stress free.

Now a days, it is a big question how to keep balance between work & life. It is important to know the distinction between work & life, as both are important in person's life.
The person who is more engaged to his job and doesn't take much time to stress out they often suffers with illness and stress. If an employee doesn't take time to stress out and relax than he/she can become less productive in their work.
It is very important to rejuvenate & relax with family & friends.The person should know how to keep balance between work & life. The employee who don't take time away from their job or didn't take any break, they often get more sick because they usually didn't able to take care of their health.
So, the person should take some time off with their family or friends because after that he/she will be refresh & energetic and will more productive to their job. Without keeping the work-life balance a person can't enjoy his life for which he is earning. So, everyone should keep balance between work & life.
Take some time out, relax & enjoy and be more productive to your job.
