Nowadays it’s not uncommon for people to be working 8am to 7pm, not the traditional 9am to 5pm, which means we have even less time to enjoy activities outside of work. Maintaining a balance is important to our health and relationships. And when we’re happier people in our personal lives it carries over into our work life as well, making us more productive and valuable employees.

The following TED talks provide insights into ways we can create better work-life balance. What is clear listening to all of these talks, is that achieving work-life balance requires you to put just as much effort into your personal life as you do into your working life. And, it’s never too late to start making some changes.
