Life often presents us with the challenge of striking a balance between work and home life. Picturing a scale, one might imagine work weighing in at around 51 percent, and home life at about 49 percent. However, defining what encompasses “work” isn’t always straightforward.
One might contemplate whether endeavors that don’t generate income should be categorized as part of home life. Yet, things we initially start as hobbies may evolve into money-making ventures. For instance, if you start generating income from activities like creating content for YouTube, at some point, it transitions from being a hobby to being part of your work.
Regardless, it is unquestionable that time spent with family holds tremendous value. It forms the bedrock of our lives and is often the key driver of our performance at work. It’s important to remember that this precious familial time isn’t just about the big moments or special occasions, but also includes daily tasks and chores.
