Balancing work and life is very tricky. It seems when things are going great at work, they are falling apart at home, and vice versa. It is also very easy to bring home your work with you. When something goes wrong at your workplace, it can affect your attitude for the whole day. When you have problems at home, you can bring in a bad attitude to work.
How do you balance it all? I wish I knew. I have been trying to do it for over 25 years.
