Self Test: Are you in a situation of burnout?


I have been hesitating to write about work-life balance because it is one of the aspects of well-being that I have the hardest time implementing in my own life. As a happiness researcher and consultant, I really do try to practice what I preach. But work-life balance is something I often work at for short bursts before I end up backsliding into workaholism.

I know that I am not the only one with this difficulty. Work-life balance is really tough for many of you ambitious, entrepreneurial, hard-working folks who read my posts. So even though I am certainly not an expert on how to achieve balance, I think it’s time we start a conversation about balance, precisely because it is so hard for so many of us to find it, and it is so integral to enhancing well-being.

Below I provide 4 questions, based on my experiences, that can help you determine if you are at risk for poor work-life balance and eventual burnout.
