It can be a necessity for certain families, due to their family structure and internal framework of activities. But, for most the people, work and life balancing act do not generate any influence or measure. Therefore, many people feel that it is useless to work on?
The employees and employers should be increasingly aware of the prevailing situation, evaluate how that species composition of the situation makes them feel, whether they are comfortable working in the given situation or they are burdened for them. They should ask themselves, whether they feel mentally and physically fulfilled, energized, and satisfied? If so, they should continue the routine work that gives them a pleasure to work more. In case they feel sad, resentful, and angry, they should realize that this particular work schedule needs alterations, like the odd, lack of work-life balancing construct can engender their emotional, physical and mental health, cultivating gradual negative emotions, which can harm them in the future.
In case the employee feels bitter or resentful regarding some official work and fundamentally, that work is not so significant to take the happiness toll, while the basic essence of regular family life is burdening his valuable time, in hours away from him, it is the right time to think deeply to make changes.
There needs a rational and clear understanding of all the priorities of life to be decided driving a smooth sailing through life is imperative, but similarly important is employee’s emotional status and reflexivity, which is his capability to understand how a work and family situation is working out with respect to his working hours that make him feel comfortable or not. The emotional condition awareness is necessary to ascertain the working hour changes the employee intends to make in his life.

The prevailing business and working hours during the pandemic have morphed into “any working hours,” or, more specifically, “all hours,” hence, it is not surprising that burnout can become a growing and serious problem, even though, working from home is devoid of the literal meaning, of the business hours.

More importantly, these are not just the one activities, but it is a cycle of a continuous process of working incessantly without re-evaluation to make improvements. These employees and executives are always under the influence of their management overpowering burden and company culture, making them work for long working hours. For them, working from home further makes them slide back and work to perform business as usual. They must decide whether this kind of attitude is their unconscious or conscious decision. All the employees always feel that they must make real and clear changes in their work and life balancing act. They should constantly remember that they should bring pause to their working hours, connect positively with their feelings, sentiments, and emotions, by rethinking regarding their priorities, assess and appraise alternatives, and bring changes, at every stage of their professional and family lives.
Due to the prevailing pandemic, the traditional 9 to 5 business hours are almost closed. Instead of that, most of the professionals work around their adjusting their family activities and schedules. The working hours have changed for everyone, the boss is unable to manage and monitor the schedules of all employees to directly report.
Hence, most of the employees feel that they should remain online most of the time to accommodate their work and all of their schedules, and take the available opportunity to communicate as and when they require.
