Work Life Balance
The term work life balance relates to a harmonious state where the demands of work and home life are in equilibrium. In other words, people with a good work life balance do not have too many demands in their personal life that impact negatively on their ability to perform well in their job. Equally, their work is not so demanding or stressful that they are not truly present for their loved ones or so busy that they never have time for them. Most people strive for a good balance between work and life even though it may see-saw from time-to-time. When a work life balance is out of kilter, people can feel very pressurised and, in the worst cases, it can even lead to developing certain mental health disorders for a time.
Happiness is one of those traits which is described as both a mental and emotional state. For example, you can mentally be happy at an event or for someone else while your overarching mood is sad. However, being happy is also an emotional state where we feel genuine joy coursing through us. It is often hard to capture happiness and to bottle it. However, the state can lead to higher levels of contentment, which is something that is more sustainable in the longer term. Of course, it is an entirely subjective matter, and what makes one person happy may be very different from how someone else might think about it.

The idea behind attachment parenting methods is that they promote a greater sense of attachment between a parent and an infant. There are seven so-called Bs behind the theory which are birth bonding, breastfeeding, babywearing, bedding close by, belief in crying as language, beware of baby trainers and balance. Together, the approach is supposed to offer greater synergy between a baby and its principal caregiver. For example, adherents of the theory point out that oxytocin, a bodily hormone, is usually released when breastfeeding, which, in turn, should lead to closer bonding. Although child attachment theories have been around for decades, attachment parenting styles have only been popularised since the 1980s. The idea is not without its critics.
