How You Can Achieve Work Life Balance

Take a Pause with Varun Duggirala

02-01-2023 • 11 mins

Once you reach a certain point in adulthood, work starts taking up the number one spot in your list of priorities. We believe that to do well in your career, one needs to spend every waking moment working and working hard. While it may be a sure fast way to ensure success, it may not always be the most sustainable. Our mind is like any other machine – it requires downtime. It is constantly working round the clock to ensure our body's smooth functioning, along with carrying out the different tasks we assign it. Add a whole bowl of stress and no rest to the mix and that makes its work even harder.

In this episode of Take aPause, Varun discusses the need to strike a balance in your life. Not only do we need to rest to lead a happy personal life, but good rest ensures we are even more productive in our professional life. He also shares a simple method that can help you prioritise the things in your life that are important.
