Occupational balance focuses on building and making good use of your knowledge, skills, and talents whether in your academic and/or professional careers.

  • Do I enjoy going to work most days?
  • Do I have a manageable workload at work?
  • Do I feel that I can talk to my boss and co-workers with problems arise?

If you answered "No" to any of the questions, it may indicate an area where you need to improve the state of your occupational wellness.
