IELTS Essay December 2018: Balance Work And Personal Life.

Nowadays people try to balance their work with other things in life, but only some could actually achieve it so far. What are the reasons for that? How can we solve this problem?

40 minutes, 250 words at least.


Introduction: (Introduce with a general statement. MENTION the reasons why this is happening and MENTION the solutions.)

In the modern era, people are extremely busy in their professions and this often leads to conflict with the personal lives. I think this is primarily due to a highly competitive environment and the availability of the internet. This issue can be solved by switching off the technology and encouraging employees to meditate.

Body Paragraph 1: (EXPLAIN the reasons for this issue)

The present work atmosphere is highly competitive in which companies try to provide a better customer service than others. This puts tremendous pressure on employees and they are compelled to work for more than 12 hours. For instance, many Apple employees work for more than 18 hours a day so that the company can develop iPhones which are superior than the competitors. This situation is further accentuated by the universal availability of the internet. Employees are often expected to keep in touch with the superiors and customers through email and WhatsApp. This often interferes with the personal aspects of life. Consequently, individuals are unable to spend a moment of love, care, and peace with their family and friends.

Body Paragraph 2: (EXPLAIN the solutions)

I think this situation can be ameliorated by switching off the technology. If a person switches off his professional phone after 6 pm, he can spend quality time with his family. This also refreshes him for greater productivity during the work hours. Also, this should be made a company policy since healthy and psychologically relaxes employees boost revenues of a company. Moreover, companies should train employees in meditation even during work hours. Various studies have proved that a few minutes of meditation after long work hours can boost the efficiency of employees.


In conclusion, a high level of competition and technology are responsible for shattering the work-life balance of employees. It is prudent to turn off the technology and spend time with the family to boost economic productivity.
