While many of the tenets of Work/Life Balance are similar to Blended Working, there are a few important differences between the two:
1. Work/Life Balance doesn't necessarily involve blending work and life activities together during the workday. It's generally more focused on taking care of yourself by balancing life around your job. In contrast, Blended Working is about incorporating activities you enjoy doing directly into your workday so that the rest of your life doesn't have to wait until your workday is done.
2. Work/Life Balance implies trying to keep things equal (balanced) between your job and the rest of your life. If your job is particularly challenging or stressful, this can lead to burnout as you try to counterbalance your workload with an equal amount of time, effort, and intensity outside of your job. In contrast, regularly blending work and life into the same time and space eliminates the vicious cycle of deficit and overcompensation.
Blended Working is about inserting activities you enjoy - ideally those that also improve your physical and/or mental health - directly into your workday to provide you with a true break from your job. Taking time out of your workday to do something you enjoy is not only good for your physical and mental health, it also enables you to be more focused and effective when you return back to your work.
