Just read a blog post about Work-Life Balance that I thought was very well written and specially meaningful. It is by Dr. Mary Coussons-Read in her site Powerful Mind Coaching. She is the Professor of Psychology and Health & Behavioural Science at the University of Colarado, Denver.
She writes of how we have grown to believe that work is supremely important. We end up with a sense of guilt that we have not been able to spend as much time on other non-work events- which are equally important.
