Work Life balance is standard HR language to minimize the litigation exposure. Here is an article that says the USA’s life work balance is amongst the lowest.
Here are two dlibert cartoons that poke fun at the concept.
Just went to a funeral service for a friend who had a sudden cardiac arrest at the age of 47. She didn’t make her health #1, and most likely increased the risk of her cardiac arrest.
If any of my data center friends look like they are losing the health vs. work battle, I try to persuade them that making your health #1 is best for you overall.
