Work / Life Balance

September 25, 2015 6:46 am Published by We all know how important it is to keep a work/life balance. It keeps us sane and allows us to disconnect from all of the stress that the day brings. Unfortunately, in the day and age of smartphones, tablets, and cloud based documents, there is bound to be a time when your boss sneaks a Bill Lumbergh from Office Space and asks you to work on Saturday (or any other day off). If you have ever fallen victim to this, or just have a hard time leaving your duties at the office, it is vital to have a dedicated space in your home to work. The good news is that you can turn nearly any amount of space into a viable home office. It is important to decide how much space you will want to set aside for your office. If you rarely work at home or want to just use your desk space to pay bills, look good, and charge your devices, choose a corner of another room or a space that can easily convert to something else when you are not using the office. If you work every night or even full-time from home, you will definitely want it to be bigger and more comfortable.
