Are you spending too much time at work and not enough time enjoying your home and social life? A surprising number of people might be unaware of just how out of balance their lives have gotten. It is hard to tell when you are working too hard sometimes, especially if you have a specific goal in mind and you know you have to put in the hours to reach it.

Luckily, the Mayo Clinic has provided us with symptoms that can clue us in on just how unbalanced our lives are. Do you suffer from any of these symptoms?

  • Fatigue
  • Lost time with friends or loved ones
  • Too much responsibility

You might not think that this is a big deal, but this can have a significant impact on your performance at work as well. If youbre tired them your productivity and ability to think rationally decreases. If you are missing out on time with the important people in your life then that also affects your focus as well as your total quality of living. Putting in extra hours can also have the effect of having more expectations placed on you.
