Everyone knows a well-balanced diet is essential for a healthy life-style, right? But, what about a well-balanced life?
YNPN delved into the mysteries of work-life balance earlier this year and in response to members’ overwhelming interest on this topic, YNPN will be continuing the conversation and hosting another workshop exploring this issue even further.
Work/life balance is the parallel of an individual’s professional work and personal life. When the two are out of sync, it can add undue stress to your already hectic life. Finding this balance is not easy (ask anyone!). That’s where we come in!
This specific workshop has been designed to provide a more intimate discussion about the subject. The last work/life balance workshop focused on balancing work with family life. Part II of this workshop will be geared toward finding time for personal interests like volunteering and seeing friends. In the end, we hope you will walk away knowing what work-life balance is, what it means to you and how you can develop it in your own life.
What: Work-life Balance Workshop Part II
When: July 21, 5:30-7:00 p.m. First half-hour will be for networking…program starts at 6:00 p.m.
Where: Literacy Austin bldg. (2222 Rosewood)

**This workshop is FREE to all YNPN members and those interested in YNPN (yes, you!).**
