Work and family are both central to our daily lives. Attempting to balance more numerous and complex work and family roles is a source of stress for many of us, mainly because it causes roll strain and spillover. Role strain occurs when the responsibilities of one role interfere with our ability to fulfill the other roles in our life. Spillover happens when the conditions and relationships in one area of our life impact us in another area.
Finding a good balance between our work and home lives is not an easy task, but the benefits to our well-being are worth the effort.
This chapter intends to provide you with an overview of key things to consider throughout this journey in order to make this experience as smooth as possible.
