Jo Maughan provides advice on how to get a better work-life balance

Do you find yourself thinking: ‘I’m too busy. I’ve got too much to do. I get no time for myself’? Asking yourself the same old question: ‘How can I get a better work-life balance?’

What if I told you, you can. And what if I told you, the solution lies with you.

Let me explain with two anecdotes.

‘Perhaps you’re over-thinking it,’ said my best friend Sarah, glass of Malbec in hand. ‘Why don’t you just ask him?’ Her comment jolted me. In that moment, I realised no one was going to do it for me. I needed to act. So I did. I asked my boss if I could work four days a week.
