GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - If you're finding it more challenging than ever to juggle the demands of your job and the rest of your life, you're not alone.

Many put in extra hours even when they aren't at work.

Karen Kodzik from St. Paul-based Cultivating Careers says instead of trying to balance them both, we should strive for a work-life blend.

Kodzik interviewed several Twin Cities workplace leaders, and says it is unrealistic to separate the two parts of your life. Instead, these professionals sought ways to blend the two parts of their lives together.

Karen joined KARE 11 News @4 to give strategies for a successful work-life blend.

  1. Envision a life where career and life are intertwined
  2. Stop compartmentalizing
  3. Don't over commit
  4. Maximize efficiency
  5. Focus on what matters
