In today’s tech-driven marketing world, it can be incredibly difficult to find uninterrupted time to relax and disconnect from the office.

For those of you who find yourself constantly checking emails on long weekends like this one or while watching the latest episode of American Horror Story (myself included), you begin to wonder if the glorified “Work-Life Balance” is a real thing or just a myth.

If there's a silver lining to this conflict, it’s that you’re not the only one struggling to find the perfect balance.

OnePoll, a market research firm, conducted a 2,000 person survey on behalf of the coupon giant Groupon to find how people typically feel about their work-life balance and the results of the survey were turned into the infographic below.

In the piece, Groupon notes that “almost 60% of Americans have a hard time maintaining a work-life balance.” Aside from it being difficult to find their equilibrium, they also generally feel more stress in the workplace as a result of burnout and a never-ending task list.

Some of the more significant workplace stats from the infographic include:

  • 1 in 7 people suffer pressure from their coworkers, but over 25% endure constant pressure from their boss.
  • 60% of Americans say there are not enough hours in a day to complete all of their tasks.
  • 41% of people say it’s been 6 months or longer since they’ve felt completely relaxed and stress-free.

If these stats are beginning to add to your stress, don’t worry!

The infographic also mentions some of the top activities people like to do to relax. Some of the activities include getting manicures or massages for women, while most men may opt for  playing video games, going to the beach, or getting a spa treatment.

Curious to see how your work-life balance measures up to the average American? Check out the full infographic below.
