The ability to achieve a balance between work and leisure time is crucial to occupational wellness. By contributing one’s skills and talents, one gains personal fulfillment from a job or chosen career field. Enjoying one’s work allows one to contribute to a positive working environment. Attaining the career objective of “doing what one was meant to do” enhances one’s sense of meaning and purpose.
To become occupationally well, one seeks a career that balances personal interests, values, skills, and strengths. Such a balance allows one to do meaningful and rewarding work that benefits the organizations and community as a whole.
