Cultivating a work-life balance

Wellbeing by Design is an original live series with Dr. Juliette Tobias-Webb & Vishal George. Explore research, insights and practical tools from behavioural science to design a mindful life with intention and purpose. We wish this can help us support each other to feel better equipped to help the beautiful humans around us.

In this conversation, we will explore how one might "cultivate a healthy work-life balance". Few topics we share in this conversation are: (1) Why is it incredibly important to maintain a healthy work-life balance? (2) What is the impact of micro stress doses (MSDs) and it’s implications on workplace wellbeing? (3) How might we make structural and psychological changes to cultivate a healthy work-life balance?We will then open up the conversation for participants to share any research they know of, personal experiences and/or reflections on the discussion so we can learn and share together.

Juliette has a PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Cambridge. She enjoyed stints as a lecturer and research officer at globally-renowned institutions including the University of British Columbia, the University of Sydney, Bond University, and Kaplan University. She has also published a number of journal articles in leading psychology and neuroscience journals. Connect with Dr. Juliette Tobias-Webb on LinkedIn
