Most people spend more time on work than on any other single thing they do. It can be a source of satisfaction, stress, support, meaning or struggle. You want your work to be meaningful, but sometimes you may feel overwhelmed by the pressure of balancing your personal life with your work life. This course is specifically designed to improve your psychological health as well as your effectiveness at work and in your personal life through a combination of mindfulness and values-guided behavioral skills.
Coursework and homework assignments for The Balancing Act promote self-awareness, help you find purpose, direction and meaning, offer new ways to improve your effectiveness in life and work and help you identify and pursue your own valued goals and actions.
