Work-life balance is a well-known phrase, but is it really possible? Can it be a reality for you?

Each person’s needs, environments, life phase and situations are different, so there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to developing and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

The key is understanding your own personal circumstances and identifying what’s working, what’s not working and what needs to change.

Research from the British psychological society confirms that, "Improving work-life balance has a positive effect on mental and physical health and overall satisfaction with life...It is important that work-life balance is addressed proactively rather than waiting until problems become ingrained.” Or as the Roman poet Ovid said: “Prevent the illness. Medicine comes too late.”

Retreat Outline:

• Defining work-life balance, why exactly is it important?
• What does the Bible say?
• Examining your own work-life balance.
• Tools you can use to develop a healthy balance.
• Setting your own goals.
• Committing to your goals and achieving them.
• One-to-one coaching sessions are available if required.

Jenny’s work-life balance clients have come from all walks to life: Executive Directors to Mission Partners.
