Guest Comment: Ten things to do in Hong Kong to achieve a better work-life balance


This article first appeared on eFinancialCareers


“Work-life balance” has become a popular term in the workplace. Sometimes it is overused, especially at job interviews when the two parties are discussing benefit terms.

The definition of work-life balance may be vague and vary among different people, but the spirit behind the concept is simple enough: it’s about how you prioritise the many facets of your everyday living. It is also about how you see and attribute achievement and enjoyment because they are the real translations of work and life respectively.

Hong Kong is a city with plenty of choices. Here are 10 things you can do to free up your time and enrich your life:

1) Schedule a chat with a genius at the Apple flagship store at the International Finance Centre shopping mall to understand how technology can streamline your emails, meeting arrangements and office tasks.

2) Automate your bill payments with your bank.

3) Adopt a dog from SPCA and let it walk you for 30 minutes every evening after your stressful office hours.

4) Visit the Hong Kong Central Library. Get a funny picture book by Anthony Browne. Then take a seat at the outdoor cafe next to the library and start reading.

5) Sip a glass of Bellini at Mo Bar at Landmark Mandarin Oriental.

6) Plan a day trip to Hong Kong Geopark to feel the power of Gaia.

7) Swim at Pak Lap Wan, a remote but beautiful beach in Sai Kung.

8) Have Sunday brunch at the Brunch Club and think about nothing.

9) Shut away all the noise and relax in silence at St John’s Cathedral.

10) Shop for dinner ingredients at Graham Street outdoor wet market and cook for your loved ones.
