Healthy work environments are important for the success of any organisation and its employees. No matter how much you love your job, having unkind/obnoxious colleagues will impact your productivity.
Balance is essential and so is your well-being. Feeling burned out, in the long run, is not a characteristic of brand loyalty. These are not things to boast about at any point during your journey. Two things are important when you're looking to grow exponentially in your career:
- Emphasis on work-life balance - a state of equilibrium where a person equally prioritizes the demands of one's career and the demands of one's personal life.
- Stick to (or seek) places which prioritize balance. Life is not all about work! It's about balance. As the saying goes, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!" Stick with (or find) a company that puts emphasis on balance. You're human at the end of the day; you're created to experience and enjoy life. There's nothing more rewarding than being in a place that understands the importance of work and play dynamics. In as much as work is rewarding, you need time with your family, friends, and children. You need time for holidays; time to unwind.
You need balance!
