In case you haven’t heard, work-life balance is a myth. At Thrive, we’re all about work-life integration. It’s different from work-life balance in that it’s a more holistic — and realistic — approach. The truth is that none of us will ever achieve perfect balance, and striving to get there just stresses us out. Work-life integration acknowledges that sometimes work will demand more of your attention, and other times life will, but by setting boundaries and making sure you’re prioritizing healthy habits, you’ll be able to thrive in all facets of your life.

Make lists to prioritize.
“I create a to-do list for the beginning of the week, and edit it every morning. I then look at it before I leave work so I can check off everything I have done and know what to prioritize the next morning. It gives me a sense of closure at the end of the day and that physical ticking off a task is actually a great mental feeling.” —Meera S., marketing manager, London, U.K.
