Striving for Work-Life Balance – Episode 173

March 11, 2020

Feeling overworked?! Between trying to get ahead at your 9-5 and pursuing side hustles, chances are really high that you feel like your work-life balance is out of whack. We find ourselves chronically fatigued and exhausted because we give too much to our work, leaving little left for ourselves and those around us who we love. For instance, as a result most Americans don’t take all their vacation time- and when they do, they find it impossible to actually stop working! This ongoing cycle of never-ending work is leading more folks than ever to despise the work they once loved while other important areas in their lives like relationships, health, and hobbies continue to suffer. This is an important topic for us to cover as we seek to implement some practices to restore that work-life balance and then create boundaries to maintain that balance.

    You mentioned online noise generators in this episode. There is a FANTASTIC noise generation website at It has *hundreds* of ambient sound generators from waterfalls to walks in the woods to random guitar licks to being on the bridge of a certain well known star ship. Each generator can be customized with it’s own built in sound mixer which itself can be randomized. I use this site frequently while I trapped in my cube.

    • Great recommendation Tom! I’ve got the Irish Coast playing right now- love it!
