Work-Life Integration

The overlap of our life areas including family, work, well-being, and community. Due to the digital age, we flow with all components in our daily interactions.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.
“We use the term Work/Life Integration instead of Work/Life Balance because the latter evokes a binary opposition between work and life. In fact, the traditional image of a scale associated with work/life balance creates a sense of competition between the two elements. Work/Life Integration instead is an approach that creates more synergies between all areas that define “life”: work, home/family, community, personal well-being, and health.” BerkeleyHaas

The overlap of our life areas including family, work, well-being, and community. Due to the digital age, we flow with all components in our daily interactions. Boundaries are blurred with the 24/7 virtual access to one another. How do we find peace? People want engagement, meaning, life satisfaction in all areas of life. More than ever, we are finding it difficult to turn off one area of our lives. It all intermingles and will continue to do so. This new wave of thought can only help us adapt!

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
