Real English Conversation - 109 : Worklife balance
Listen to All
Wilson: I've been working so much lately, I feel like I never have any free time.
Sara: Yeah, I know what you mean. It's important to find a balance. I try to schedule my work and personal time so that I can have a good balance.
Wilson: That's a good idea. Maybe I should try that too. My boss is always expecting me to work overtime, but I'm getting burnt out.
Sara: Have you talked to your boss about it? It's important to make time for yourself, even if it's just a little bit every day.
Wilson: Yeah, I need to start taking breaks more often. I feel guilty when I take time off work, like I'm not being productive.
Sara: Taking breaks can actually make you more productive in the long run. Have you considered working from home sometimes?
Wilson: That's a good idea, but my job doesn't really allow for that. I wish I had more time to spend with my family and friends.
Sara: Yeah, it's important to have a support system outside of work. What are some things you like to do for fun?
Wilson: I used to play guitar, but I haven't had time for it lately. I've been thinking about finding a new job with better work-life balance.
Sara: That's definitely something to consider if you're feeling overwhelmed. Remember, work is important, but it's not everything. Don't forget to take care of yourself too.
