The Work-Life Balance Quiz – Guaranteed To Change Your Life


What is a healthy work-life balance, and why is it important??

There’s so much information out there these days about how we are constantly stressing ourselves out, overworking ourselves, and facing burnout. Quite frankly, all of the articles about feeling overwhelmed are overwhelming! (Sorry for the lame joke, but stay with me here…)

We WANT to improve our lives, simplify things, feel less stressed, and all that GOOD stuff. Right?

Except there’s just. so. much. information…  We’re gathering data from every corner, and often don’t know where to start!

We set ourselves (and our great goals and intentions) up for failure right off the bat.

But guess what?

Creating a GREAT work-life balance doesn’t have to be so hard. We just need to know where to focus our energy.

Instead of reading 20 articles and trying to decide what to do next, just take our quick quiz and see what areas of life (work, social, personal, family) you feel like you’re struggling in the most. (You’ll also see what you’re doing the best at! Score!)

This quiz helps you target the right areas first, so you can make REAL progress to feeling less stress, more connection, and a general sense of well-being and peace.

By working on specific areas in your life, you will:

  • reduce your feelings of burnout
  • prevent yourself from being overwhelmed as quickly
  • and create a plan for yourself with simple goals that are easy to achieve.

In general, you will make MORE progress towards living your best life, FASTER, by knowing where to start.

That’s how you build a good work-life balance that leaves you feeling more in love with your every day life.

To make this quiz as easy as possible for you, I have set this up as a quick quiz below, which will automatically give you a score and show you where to focus FIRST.

(Just scroll down to take the quiz.)

Or, if you’re a paper and pen thinker (sometimes having it written in front of us is SO powerful, right?) I have also created this as a printable PDF file that you can work on and come back to whenever you like.

Or take it every few months to check your progress and keep your focus!

(Just enter your email on the right to grab the downloadable PDF version.)

 Got the downloadable version? Okay… now check out the interactive Work-Life Balance Audit quiz below!

Find your strengths and weaknesses in business and life, so you can be happier, live longer, and succeed more often.


Answer each question on a scale of 1 to 5:

5- Completely Agree 4- Mostly Agree 3- Agree 2- Mostly Disagree 1- Completely Disagree

Use the scoring sheet at the end of the audit to determine your score. To be as accurate as possible, use your first reaction as your choice, don't hesitate or change your answers.

There are FIVE sections of the questionnaire, each section focused on a different aspect of work or life.

Once you finish all five sections and calculate your score, you will be able to use the overall score to determine if you have an optimal work+life balance.

You will be able to use the individual section scores to determine which areas need improvement and can focus on the areas most needing attention first.
