From the Harvard Business Review, this article explains the complicated relationship that many, particularly young professionals, can have with managing their work-life balance. The authors consider why this problem can arise and how to recognise it, as well as suggesting ways to reclaim priority over one's time.

"Social pressures, demanding bosses, imposter syndrome — there are a lot of reasons we choose (or feel obligated) to push ourselves to work longer and harder. Especially when you’re just getting started, you may feel an increased desire to prove your dedication and ability to succeed in your chosen path.

Spoiler alert: “Putting in the work now” in the hopes of reaping the benefits later won’t work. The habits you create early on, like poor work-life balance, can follow you throughout your career."
