The concept of occupational wellness has been growing in recent years, which is partially due to the effect that COVID-19 has had on the workplace. Learning how to achieve this balance between our work lives and our social lives is imperative for reducing stress, increasing happiness, and encouraging a sense of satisfaction in all areas of life.
We live in a world where careers and work are often the primary measures of overall “success.” However, this may not always be healthy, as many workplaces overemphasize how employees need to spend their time or effort.
This may leave people with very little time to devote to themselves, their families and friends, or their hobbies. Learning how to cultivate wellness in all aspects of one’s life can greatly improve people’s sense of satisfaction and happiness. This, in turn, can also lead them to find work they are truly passionate about and want to engage in.
