The Five Truth About Work-Life Balance + Giveaway

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  Work-life balance has nothing to do with work. Really. It also doesn't matter what words you use to describe it. The fact is, most people share a similar desire to create easy joy and meaningful engagement across the roles, relationships and responsibilities that make up life.

Our current habits and perceptions often get us stuck and prevent us from creating the life we desire. Get unstuck, learn the truths about work-life balance.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Work-life balance is one of my favorite topics.  I have been trying to balance both for 20+ and love to read books on the topic.  More recently, I have felt out of balance everywhere.  I started a new job in May as a CFO, moved my family from New York to Ohio in August, my husband started a new job in September, the kids stated new schools and sports teams in September, and my son got hurt in hockey in December and had surgery in January.  It is nice to know that one of the truths written about in the book is about being in and out of balance.  Guess what? Its okay! 

I truly enjoyed The Five Truths About Work-Life Balance.  Check out this quick video.

Fast read/slow read:  So fast, you can read on your lunch break!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I would love to read all the other books by Jae.  The entire Mindful Life Collections looks really great.

Jae has taught the skill of awareness to thousands of employees at multinational corporations in more than 50 countries including China, Russia, India, Japan, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Germany, United Kingdom, Norway, and the United States.

Jae contributes to the Awareness at Work column for Mindful Magazine, the Healthy Living section on Huffington Post as well as the Simple Intentions blog. Jae has a master’s degree in Communication Management from Colorado State University and a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Communication from Metropolitan State College of Denver.

  2. -VSA is a reliable "truth verifier" vs. perfect 'lie-detector" per se, as such responses' are sometimes caused by other emotions such as confusion, unwillingness, etc.
