The Fi­nal Ver­dict

CLEO (Singapore) - - BEAUTY -

It’s in­ter­est­ing to see how Crys­tal, Ni­co­lette and An­ge­line and all seem to blur the lines be­tween work and play.

For Crys­tal, be­ing able to travel of­ten for work is a dream come true. “Trav­el­ling al­most every month can be tir­ing, but ex­plor­ing a coun­try I’ve never been to makes it all worth it... Be­ing with my fam­ily and rest­ing at home is my pri­or­ity now, es­pe­cially be­cause I travel so of­ten.”

As a mar­ket­ing ex­ec­u­tive at two night­clubs, Ni­co­lette man­ages to let fun in­ter­sect with work. When asked if hit­ting Bang Bang with her friends feels like work, she said, “Con­sid­er­ing how smashed I [can get], I would say no.”

Sim­i­larly, An­ge­line finds ful­fill­ment in what she does, even if that mean she’s work­ing a lot of the time. De­spite be­ing on va­ca­tion for close to half the week, she ended up work­ing more hours than Ni­co­lette and Crys­tal! While this could partly be due to the two-day yoga train­ing work­shop the stu­dio was con­duct­ing, it’s clear she doesn’t feel like her work pre­vents her from achiev­ing what she wants in life.

While these women have dif­fer­ent jobs and takes on life, they all find joy in their work. Per­haps the key to be­ing con­tent with your work-life bal­ance is to find a way to make work less about pain, and more about play.
