Many people these days travel far for work or spend more hours working. Does this trend have more advantages or disadvantages? What do you think about work-life balance?

In
this
day and age, the major section of society is spending long
hours
working or travelling for business purposes. I think
this
type of working leads to
work-life
imbalance and
therefore
it has certain disadvantages. In the following paragraphs, I will discuss the negative consequences of
this
trend and the importance of
work-life
balance.
Firstly
, the main downside of travelling to distinct places for the job and working day in and day out is that after some time these people start facing many problems like anxiety, stress and even back problems. Apart from
this
, they have very few
hours
to spend with their families.
For instance
, if a person is travelling far from his hometown for a job
then
he will almost be away from his family for a week and even after ,returning he will be tired. In
this
situation, he will lose connection with the family.
Furthermore
, in
such
cases, there would be a
work-life
imbalance that leads to serious negative consequences. I believe
work-life
balance is of utmost importance because when a person devotes equal
hours
to working activity and personal growth
then
there is more productivity.
For example
, if an individual is working from Monday to Friday for a specific number of
hours
and
then
taking a break on the weekends,
then
his mind will be rejuvenated during that period of time and he can come up with more new ideas. And, at the same time, he will be attached to his family and will feel more productive. To conclude, I would like to say that in your life, spend
hours
not only working but trying to maintain a balance between work and personal life.
