Intrapersonal skills are the foundation of work-life integration

Intrapersonal skills are the foundation of work-life integration

The concept of the work-life balance has always been false and is a long-outdated approach.

In her latest article, 'Balancing act to integrate work and life', published by UK's leading independent HR publication Personnel TodayDr. Helena Lass explores how intrapersonal skills enable us to stay fully focused on the actual task at hand. 


The use of modern portable devices and laptops instead of fixed phones and desktop computers in the office means there is no longer a clear distinction line between work and life. We can be at work – in the car, at the shops, during the holiday or when with friends or family members. We are connected to our work 24/7 and working is no longer confined to a permanent location for most of us as it used to be.

Being constantly online and accessible has caused a shift in the way we conduct our lives and business. It is one of the reasons people feel increasingly stressed and one of the main contributing factors in why we find ourselves in the midst of an unfolding mental health crisis.

However, the problem isn't “out there”, rather in the lack of the skills that could support us in the midst of these new challenges. More precisely, there has never existed a structured education on handling the intrapersonal processes – how to handle compulsive thoughts and worry, emotional pressure, motivation, attention, etc. Education on how to integrate the different aspects of life is one of the most valuable assets one can acquire.



Work-life integration is still possible, it just demands a different set of skills than before.

Reading this proactive mental wellness article enables you to understand how to re-evaluate your ways to work in our modern hyperconnected world so that your personal life thrives.
