How is your Work-Life Balance? The old model of work-life balance that spoke to the division of time and effort between career and recreation, has been outdated and somewhat irrelevant for many years. The model that champions the vision of this formula in the 21st century, while including that of time spent in leisure and recreational activities has become more about the quality of life related to levels of satisfaction and enjoyment, contrasted with stress and anxiety experienced by individuals. Who we are at home, the levels of anxiety and happiness, our fears and phobias, our learned behaviour patterns and the forces that compel us in our relationship building skills, are the very same elements that we carry with us into our working environment. While some aspects of our workplace personna are uniquely exhibited in that environment, our underlying nature represents the foundation of the person we are, the manner in which we conduct ourselves and the way in which we interact with others during our daily work activities. With this in mind, emphasis must be placed on addressing the emotional and mental compass and well being of individuals to ensure an equitable approach to all of the elements required for a balanced, happy, and productive employee intent on successful outcomes both professionally and personally. Individuals with a healthy work-life balance are recognisable by the manner in which they have prioritised and arranged elements of a successful career and lifestyle, combining personal and professional relationships which include development and growth in both areas. Achieving and maintaining a healthy mental and emotional wellbeing is a continuous process, influenced by our own desires for managing our lives successfully. It is within these processes whereby people develop strategies that help them resolve common everyday problems that we often find ourselves getting things wrong and falling out of balance. It is helpful if people are sensitised to core issues and ideas that impact their thinking, emotions and behaviour. We have been taught to regard others as the source of our emotional content and we measure ourselves in relation to the distance we can achieve away from whatever is negative or bad. The goal is to inform and educate individuals in the structured approach to personal development and reveal the solutions to the most common problems encountered by individuals seeking change. It's important that people can realise the desire for goal achievement is not a guessing game and the forecasted level of success is clearly measurable. Additionally, it is crucial for that people gain insight and firsthand knowledge into the manner that will allow progress in their life, from an informed position. During the past two decades there have been a number of modalities that have influenced the standard approach to personal growth and development and have served to change the methodologies successful practitioners employ. Cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnosis, addiction counseling, executive mentoring, and life coaching are just some examples of new techniques being employed by remedial and healing professionals. While the traditional approach; psychotherapy, relationship and family counseling, and psychometric testing is still relevant and among the most successful undertakings in personal growth and development, consideration must be given to those factors that have influenced the approach to one's equity and stability and contributed to giving it a 21st Century identity. I set out in plain and easy to understand language, the aspects, traditional and modern, surrounding a solid and knowledgeable approach in the search for work-life balance. explain how to accomplish a shift in mindset of running away from negative and moving toward goals and why many people use negative words to describe their positive well being. Additionally I help participants realize any disparity existing in their work-life balance as it relates to such areas as health, finances, personal development goals, personal and professional relationships and other important aspects contributing to successful outcomes. I teach individuals how to stop their buttons from being pushed and also explain the difference between visualization and imagery.
