I try to manage the work-life balance doing a schedule weekly where I plan the things that I have to do and I have a work time and respect it

sometimes its difficult .to manage your time between working and your private life .especially if you want to go out with your friends or your family

I think it's more relaxed when you can split up the work. So you have no stress and you can still live your family life.
In addition, you don't have to be stressful to get to work quickly; you can relax and do your work on the couch. I think the Corona pandemic is exactly the same for many people as in the Situation described above. They have to organize their life or even work from home. I think that a lot of people can do a good job of balancing their professional and private lives.

I believe that so far the working flexibility is practised little in my country, , because the employers have a very close mentality, both in public bodies and in the companies. I hope that the smart working - made necessary by Covid - can convince them of the advantages of this new work-life balance.

Work life balance is very important in everyone's life period . I have managed my work with suitable fix hours. I do not work on the weekend . During this time I spend my time with my family . I enjoy indoor sports, walking ,shopping and watching movies on television with my loving family.

I think everything depends on how someone wants to spend his to her time. Traditional and Modern work places have their own pros and cons.

Work life balance depends on the priorities you set for yourself. It also involves your physical and mental abilities. If someone is too lazy and cannot handle multi tasking it will be difficult to bring Work-life balance.

I try to mix my work and free time, however sometimes i just take time to relax, because the work routine becames very stressful.

I'm happy because I'm the boss in my work and in these environments, I can manage my work-life balance. I usually work a couple of hours per day, often in the evenings, at the weekends and holidays, so my work is flexible. These give me the ability to do different stuff per day without work.

As I am a student sometimes it’s difficult. I try to manage my Study- life balance but sometimes it isn’t as easy as I would like. Nowadays it’s quite better cause I have class through my computer and I have more time in my schedule.

I like to work very much, I love my profession, but I like to practice sports too, so I try always to have a work-life balance, I prefer to work in the morning and work out in the evenings, but I like to change my routine sometimes, in this way, some weeks I work out early in the morning and go to work later and work until before 4:00 or 3:00 pm.
