Occupational well-being is a reflection of your personal values and contribution to society merging through your professional growth. In addition to developing new skills, balancing work and leisure time is important to ensure a harmonious lifestyle that is both challenging and rewarding.

Avoiding job dissatisfaction can protect an individual from mental health issues later in life such as depression, sleep problems, and excessive worry. Managing stress at work and developing healthy relationships with coworkers can assist in sustaining your occupational well-being throughout your career.
