CNN.com has a section dedicated to this topic. Here’s what its opening page says:
“Americans are working longer hours than ever before, taking a big bite out of their personal lives. Add economic pressures and technology that ensures a 24/7 connection to work and you have the line between job and personal life blurring.”
It also states:
“A stressful work life can affect your home life as well.”
The latter statement is quite a big message. If your job is causing you stress, you can’t possibly have a balanced life at home. It just doesn’t work like that. You’ll end up taking our your frustrations on your spouse, children or friends. I’ve found that if your job is that stressful, you need to reevaluate what you do or where you work. How you feel about your job definitely seeps into your home life.
Take its quiz, “Are you off balance?“ and see how you rate. I scored a 47 percent; it says I’m “in harmony.”
