Everyone has many roles in life – from employee, colleague, and team mate to parent, partner, sibling, and carer; these roles change throughout the lifecycle. The demands of each of these roles vary between people, depending on lifestyle and priorities. They each require time and energy, and since clashes between such demands are not infrequent, they tend to cause stress. Resultant stress is inclined to cause work-life conflict; conversely, work-life balance tends to occur when these two sets of demands are flexible enough to allow time and energy for the other.
