There’s life and there’s the job, right? Wrong. Anna Tims’ Guardian article, 10 Steps to Happiness, outlines what experts say about creating a balanced life and assessing our needs and wants from our span here on Earth. Rather than treating work and home as disjointed parts of the same existence we can learn to re-infuse our lives with greater purpose fulfilment. Sometimes it’s a change in perception that is required, rather than a change in circumstances, and work is not necessarily the enemy if it is managed correctly. And it can all be achieved without you having to trek through rain forests, climb a mountain or wear sackcloth. Lots of interesting links too.
