Free-draw to answer the question: What is your right number?
- In this film, we see two opposing scenarios where in one an individual is striving to feel successful at work by working long hours and sacrificing personal time and sleep vs. an individual who pursues a work-life balance, where they leave their working life behind at the end of the work day, and eat and sleep well.
- What is the best lifestyle for you? Respond by picking up a pen/pencil/marker/crayon and let your hand freely respond to memories and thoughts of a time when you were driven by work and then on a separate piece of paper, allow your hand to respond to the ideal of a work-life balance with the promise of feeling well-rested and healthier and more connected to the non-work people in your life. Reflect on your drawings: What are the differences? Which is more appealing?
