Today, I’m thankful to have a manager that really cares about living a balanced life. She doesn’t focus just on the work; she understands (and tells me often) that your work shouldn’t be your whole life.
Since I began my career I’ve dived into my work and focused on it so much — often to the detriment of friendships and family. But my manager tells me not to check email on the weekends, or late at night. And offers life advice that goes beyond the job at hand.
