Strategies for work-life balance announced at Work, Family Fair

In celebration of National Work and Family Month, the Office of Work, Life and Engagement announced Johns Hopkins’ Top Ten Strategies for Achieving Work-Life Balance at its Work and Family Fair, which was held Oct. 5 on the East Baltimore campus.

The strategies, submitted by employees of the Johns Hopkins Institutions, included taking advantage of campus activities to learn something new, keeping lists and reprioritizing as necessary, meeting a friend for lunch and taking 20 minutes daily for “me time.” For the complete list, go to www.hopkinsworklife.org.
