No longer are we confined to the traditional 9 to 5 daily grind. So what does it look like to juggle work and relaxation in the digital age? As our work life extends beyond the office, the joy of play often infiltrates our professional lives as well. It’s the equilibrium between work, relationships, technology, and hobbies that make our day-to-day world go 'round. We asked professionals from across the globe to share a glimpse of both their professional and personal lives; take a look at how the modern day professional approaches work/life balance.  

Tweet and share with us on Instagram using #goodcitiesproject to share how you balance your work with your life. For more data-driven information on balancing work and play, check out our latest infographic. 


The GOOD Cities Project is a five-month collaboration with Ford, exploring how we make our cities and how our cities make us. As part of the project, GOOD and Ford have commissioned cultural creatives across the country to help illuminate and celebrate the rich and vastly diverse points of view that make up each city's individual character. Each week, we will be exploring attributes that we believe are fundamental to living meaningful urban lives.
