    How is your Work Life Balance??
    According to an article in the Daily Mail "Britain has the worst work-life balance in western Europe, research has revealed. A study has found that the UK has the highest proportion of employees working more than 50 hours a week. It means Britons spend 325 more hours at work than their German counterparts every year – giving them less time to relax and unwind. Scandinavian countries top the list of the world's industrialized nations with the best work-life balance, while the United States, Japan and South Korea are languishing at the bottom.
