Ready, Set, Calculate!
If you are struggling with work/life balance, now’s the time to see exactly how and where you spend your precious time. With work, home and relationship responsibilities competing for your attention, it can be easy for important basics like healthy meals and regular sleep to be squeezed out.
The virtual Work/Life Balance Calculator from CNN.com is a wonderful resource that shows how you allocate your time throughout each day and over the course of an average week.
With categories including “Meals,” “Commute,” and “Leisure,” you can see how you currently divide your time, and then make adjustments to create your ideal schedule. The hours you spend on each activity are calculated by percentage, and the color coded pie-graph is an effective, eye-opening visual aid.
There are 168 hours in a week. How will you spend them? Get calculating!
