I sincerely believe that allowing your employees to work remotely and around their own schedules is empowering and sends a very clear message — we value you and your time, we trust you to get the work done and understand that you have your own life outside of our four walls.Alex Zaccaria // Co-Founder of Linktree

Rather than fine tuning work-life balance per say, I think it is more important to work on finding joy throughout your workday. It’s essential to find joy in what we do, whether it’s a longer lunch break, starting a project you really want to do, or walking the additional mile to your favourite coffee shop. If it lifts your mood, I consider that a win.Natalie Nguyen // Co-Founder & CEO of Hyper Anna

Work–life balance to me means having emotional energy and mental capacity at the end of the day to be fully present with the people I love and to be able to do something I care about for reasons other than my livelihood.Jeremiah Lee // Engineering Manager at InVision
Work-life balance interviews with designers
Take more breaks. Let your mind wander from time to time. Seek the silence and listen to your body. I wish more companies would show more trust towards their teammates and allow people to work remotely more often. Break up your tasks and plan your week if you can. Most importantly, if you can, find meaningful work that matters to you.Alex Muench // Product Designer at Doist
Work-life balance interviews with freelancers
I’m a big believer in the power of words. If one puts pressure on themselves to achieve balance, doesn’t that have the potential to achieve the opposite? As a freelancer, it’s a luxury to be busy.Sofia Levin // Food & Travel Journalist
Work-life balance interviews with coaches
Truthfully, I prefer to think of it as work-life integration rather than balance. My work is something that I’m deeply passionate about, it’s part of me, so naturally there’s a lot of overlap between my “work” and “life.”Adriele Parker // Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Strategist & Career Coach
Work-life balance interviews with with musicians
I think that I’m still trying to find my way. So I can’t really say. I think that it’s okay to not have it down pat. We’re all learning. We’re all striving to kind of just be better with the balance because it’s difficult to achieve.Nick Carter Green // Musician, Designer & Creative Director
Work-life balance interviews with product managers
One idea that has always resonated with me is that we don’t serve anyone by playing small. So don’t be afraid to place ambitious bets on yourself – and go all in on making them succeed.Yana Yushkina // Product Manager at Google
Work-life balance interviews with HR & culture professionals
I know that I’ll be able to give 100% at work if I’ve taken the time to switch off. I know I need that down-time to recharge my batteries. I’ve experienced burnout before, and it’s not fun. I know when I’m reaching my peak and I need to take a step back and re-assess my priorities.Jaclyn Majarich // Employer Brand Manager at Optus
