ATD Greater Boston Presents:
The Myth of Work-Life Balance
Thursday, September 30, 2021
Virtual event - link in registration email
6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
The Oxford dictionary defines balance as “1. an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady 2. a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.” Seeking “balance” leads us to measure our professional and personal lives as equal quantitative components. When measured in this way, we come up short every time. And the ever-elusive search for work-life balance and thus burnout begins.
What if there was a different way to view your professional and personal lives? What would it look like to create a holistic life where your mind, body, spirit, and emotions were aligned, leading you to feel fulfilled at home and at work?
Harmony is defined as “an agreement of ideas, feelings, or actions or a pleasing combination of different parts.” When the mind, body, spirit, and emotions are fulfilled, harmony is realized.
In this interactive presentation, we will examine the definition of work-life balance and the myth of achieving it. We will dive into simple, evidence-based strategies that offer more harmony in our lives. You will leave with an alternative mindset that will aid you in creating a holistically harmonious life, a life that doesn’t teeter on burnout.
