Which gender is better at achieving a work/life balance? The answer may surprise you.
According to this infographic by Captivate Network, a digital media company, 75 percent of men are happy with their work/life balance, while only 70 percent of women feel the same way.
How do “happy” people achieve a work/life balance? For 97 percent, it’s taking vacations. Leaving work at a reasonable hour and taking breaks throughout the day also help.
Other interesting findings: Men are 35 percent more likely than women to take a break “just to relax,” and 25 percent more likely to use down time for personal activities.
