The journey to find the perfect job offering a balanced work-life schedule is no easy feat.
According to the American Institute of Stress, job stress is by the far the top source of stress for American adults. With the increased stress levels in the workplace, work-life balance has decreased, leaving employees reporting an average work-life balance satisfaction rating of 3.5 in 2009, 3.4 in 2012, and 3.2 in 2015 -- making it more important than ever to find the perfect harmony in your career.
So, what are the aspects that attribute to a healthy balance?
According to the Business Dictionary, work-life balance simply means having a comfortable state of equilibrium, which is achieved between employees' primary priorities of their employment position and their private lifestyle.
Unfortunately, many jobs do not present the opportunity to attain the perfect balance resulting in employees on the quest to find careers that do.
