With growing ambitions and the hunger for success, the term work life balance stops making much impact on people as days pass. Swimming with kids or taking them for football practice becomes a weekly affair instead of daily and spouses are forgotten completely.

So how does one crack the code? Commute between home to office gets longer and the way back is doubly excruciating. As a result, by the time one gets home, the simple joys like family dinners start seeming like tasks.
In this blog, we bring you 6 tips to maintain a healthy work life balance and break the chains of corporate slavery.
- Perfectionism is an illusion- As kids we were all able to be perfect, smart and best at what we did. But as life progresses, the challenges are tougher and the responsibilities are more.

- Switch Off- Unless you shut down your phone and stop receiving work calls on weekends, your phone will keep buzzing and you will be replying to emails sitting on the couch while your children slowly get the message that may be mom or dad are just not interested in them.
