Achieving the perfect work-life balance feels like a never ending battle. I’m extremely passionate about what I do and have the I want to go above and beyond personality type (as so many of us do). When we mix those two variables together, we create what is known as “The Workaholic”. This means I’m checking emails in bed at 11:30pm, interacting for client accounts on Instagram when I’m with my boyfriend, or obsessing over unfinished tasks when I’m working out at the gym. Sound familiar?
As a Director of Public Relations & Social Media, EVERYTHING can be done via computer and mobile. While it’s my dream to have the freedom to work from anywhere at anytime, it’s also a curse if you’re an over-achiever. My job consists of running social media accounts across many social platforms, as well as using apps for team communication & project management. So of course there is a mobile version for EVERYTHING I do. I’m constantly challenged to avoid looking at work-related content whenever I check my devices after hours. Did I mention that I work from home and never technically leave the office? Hence the importance of work-life balance!
