Work Life Balance:

The Power of Leisure Time Recovery
When was the last time you competed on “busyness”? “I’m so busy”: has become a symbol of status that threatens our leisure.
Length of Workshop: 1 hour
Number of Participants: 20

These days, work life balance can seem like an impossible feat. Technology makes workers accessible around the clock and fears of job loss incentivise longer hours.

More time means more productivity only up to a point. Then people get tired and drained. Their ability to innovate goes down, resilience suffers, they produce less and they make more mistakes. Energy capacity diminishes with overuse so we must balance energy expenditure with energy renewal. As all our energy resources are depleted at work we are left with no energy for our home life.

Under normal circumstances, once no longer exposed to work demands recovery should take place, however in today’s ‘always on’ culture this is rare and mentally disengaging from work can be difficult. Without adequate recovery, fatigue and low mood may develop into chronic conditions such as depression and burnout. Even when going on holiday, employees still find it difficult to switch off from work.

Taking care of ourselves takes time. In order to do this we need to shift our paradigms and our mindsets about how we switch off from work and prioritise taking care of ourselves.

‘Leisure time recovery’ looks at the role that restorative experiences have on our recovery from work, and how this impacts on health and job performance. We will examine the four key areas for recovery that manage your energy systems most tactically. Join us to become an expert at managing our own energy systems, gaining new resources and a plan of action in order to restore and recover so you strike the right balance and perform your best and enjoy life.
