  • by factors such as age changes in working
    conditions the demands
  • of new technology and poor management.

    act between paid work
  • and the other activities that are important to

    overall happiness and well-being and negatively
    impact your life in far-reaching ways.
  • Adverse health consequences, such as
    stress-related illnesses, can result when you are
    chronically tense or upset.
  • situational factors pose challenges to your
    efforts to create the work-life balance you want.

    cultural factors. These include norms and
    assumptions particularly in relation to gender
    roles and the domestic division of labour.
