Definition of Work-Life Balance: The amount of time you spend doing your job compared with the amount of time you spend with your family and doing things you enjoy. (Cambridge Dictionary Online)
S.C. Clark defines work-life balance as “satisfaction and good functioning at work and at home with a minimum of role conflict” (Clark, S.C., 2000, Work/family border theory: A new theory of work/life balance. Human Relations, 53,6,747-770)
The components of work-life balance include time allocated for:
Health - Physical and Mental
Friends and Social Communication
Hobbies, Interests and Passions
Emotional and Spiritual Balance
There is no one “perfect” balance between work and life. The nature of that balance is different for every individual, and changes over time for each person. So we shouldn’t strive for perfection, but rather to be constantly aware of making choices that will benefit all aspects of our lives, as much as possible at any particular moment in time.
Achieving work/life balance is an investment – it does take time and effort to implement the changes necessary, and at times, even sacrifices. But it’s worth the effort!
Here are some of the potential benefits of maintaining balance in your life: You will feel more rested and energized, with increased productivity, leading to greater career success, and enjoy more work satisfaction and higher morale. You will also have improved relationships with family and friends, better physical and mental health, with the freedom to make more choices based on your priorities, rather than having to sacrifice some, and of course, more leisure time to spend with loved ones, or time for yourself.
Your organisation will benefit immensely as well, with increased productivity, improved staff morale, reduced staff turnover, reduced absenteeism and an overall positive work environment.
The good news is: With the help of the Workplace Outreach Wellness (WOW) package, every organisation in Singapore can strive towards helping each employee achieve work-life balance and thus, greater productivity and a happier nation!
Below are some of the in-house programs we offer to our clients.
Stress is not necessarily something bad - it all depends on how you respond to stressors in your life. The stress of exhilarating, creative, successful endeavors is energizing, while that of failure, humiliation or loss of control is detrimental.
At Health Coach International, we believe in helping you turn stress into positive energy by following an integrative approach, which starts from the mental perspective, right down to the physical. You will also be equipped with practical skills that can help you regain control of your life.
At the end of the one-day workshop, participants will be able to:
Recognize symptoms and causes of pressure and overcome its negative effects on individual performance
Communicate effectively and assertively by using a variety of skills
Utilize practical steps to manage and be in control of one's available time
Cope with stress through physical and mental disciplines

Integrative Weight Management
Most weight loss programs today focus on calorie counting and deprivation diets which have proven to be ineffective as the average dieter often ends up worse off than when they started. Such weight loss programs may also slow down the metabolic rate, making the weight loss more difficult to maintain, and worse, may be detrimental to your health!
Our integrative weight loss program is a proven effective, safe yet fast way to lose weight, with a focus on long-term weight control and prevention of weight gain. Depending on your particular circumstances and health conditions, our team of health coaches use a combination of techniques and strategies to help you not only lose those extra kilos, but also keep them off!
Under the WOW package, our 12-Week Personalised Program, the company pays only $230* per person!!! Normal fee is $1280 per person.

If you’ve had a hard time trying to quit (and staying smokefree), then this 12-week programme is for you. You can follow this programme hand in hand with your certified health coach who will help you understand your own personal reasons to quit. Your coach will help you cope with the habit and addiction of smoking, and make sure you stay off cigarettes for good.
Of course, you’re probably wondering why this programme would work for you, when there are so many quit-smoking programmes and guides out there. The reason why the HCI 12-week programme will work for you is that it recognizes your individuality. In order to quit smoking, you need to know why you smoke in the first place, and then you need to know what people, places or things trigger your unique urge to light up.
Once you know why you smoke, you can start working toward overcoming your individual obstacles – this is the surest road to become a nonsmoker for life.
But you know that quitting is not actually the hardest part – the hardest part is sticking to it. The first two weeks are the hardest, and after that the first two months. This programme will show you how to cope.
WOW funding is available for corporate clients. Email us now for more details.
