This creation is about a person playing seesaw alone, late at night, after their overtime work. They don't have much personal time due to constantly working overtime. This is the only time they can relax themselves and not think about anything, the playpark is their 'go-to' place for peace and happiness because it reminds them of their happy and carefree childhood. Playpark is a happy place during the day, but now, their only free time is when everyone is asleep at night.
I think some of us have been there:
- We work overtime, get home from work, and everyone in the household is asleep. We're all alone by ourselves, feeling exhausted and drained.
- When we were young, our parents were out for work early in the morning when we were still asleep and they came home from work when we were asleep. We might not see our parents at all in a day because they were busy with work.
I think of the seesaw every time I hear/see the word 'work-life balance'. It's hard to maintain balance between our work-life, we're always seesaw back and forth across the middle. Take a moment and imagine that we're at the end of our life and have a chance to give our current self some advices. What would you say? Many people would be saying things like "spend more time on the things that really matter".
But, how often do we actually stop to think about what are the priorities in our lives? Even if we are clear on our priorities, are we actually living in a way that is consistent with them right now? Figure out what’s important to us, set our priorities and boundaries, do what we love and rewards will follow.
Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is important for our health, well-being and relationships.
