This can be difficult and take a lot of familiarization. This is a complete change in one's lifestyle. Again, this can also cause more stress on a spouse. Now, one person has to work, pay bills, take care of the children — if applicable — , and any other job that is sprung upon them. Going from a working system of sharing different tasks and responsibilities with a spouse, to having to fend for yourself can be quite an eye opener and cause more stress than
The long working hours are a hindrance stressor as it cannot be overcome and it part of the job. The result was the lack of time I had to do academic work which could not be assisted as I need to have a job in order to sustain myself so therefore I cannot remove the stressor. If the pressure of a stressor is persistent and extreme then the pressure leads to stress which leads to illnesses and mentally and physically damaging effects (Giga, Cooper & Faragher, 2003). I started feeling the physiological effects of exhaustion and burnout due to not having a break to rest, working long hours and a lack of sleep due to having to stay up late during the work to do my academic work. I started feeling the psychological effect of stress which entailed the lack of ability to concentrate at work and at university as I was constantly thinking about the amount of academic I had to do before the weekend (Heaney, 2003).
OCD interferes with the patients’ daily lives, work, academic progress and family life. It stops patients’ from having a normal life and impairs them from living a busy lifestyle because the rituals they perform tend to take so much of their time each and every single day. OCD affects the patients’ family more than it affects the individuals themselves; OCD often has more significant effects on the patients’ family, whether it was their spouse, children, parents or siblings (Rachman & De Silva, 2009, p. 64). A patients’ family needs to stay strong, but most importantly encourage their OCD patient family member to do the same and give him/her all the support he/she needs.
Gender differences and societal expectations also cause family roles to be more intertwined and confusing. Firstly, according to Symbolic Interaction framework, in Role Theory, every member has a specific role that comes with its own expectations (Nock, 1987). An unhealthy work-life balance then affects the family in the delegation of tasks and responsibilities, which binds family members together. The lack of a healthy work-life balance might suggest some members of forgoing family time to work, and such an absence would mean that the individual did not participate or do their part, which meant that other family members within the household would have to take on more roles and responsibilities. Absence may also lead to disappointments and blame due to the expectations that come with that said role, leading to the development of unhealthy relationships.
Work life balance is the process of minimizing the role conflict of a person by maintaining his perceptions about work and his personal time and family welfare (Clark S. C. 2000) .Work life balance can be defined as the perception of an employee to maintain and integrate multiple domains of personal, time, family care and work with minimum role conflict . Work life balance can be different to different people depending upon the different stages of life. It basically includes the problems of exhaustion and lack of time. Research shows that failure to achieve a satisfactory balance of effort is directly connected to lack of energy to fulfill personal commitments and lack of control over the workload. The imbalance here leads to consequences such as fatigue, poor quality of life and most importantly poor performance.
Conflict is a manifestation of stress due to competing role demands, conflict is considered a bi-directional construct, in that work can interfere with family (i.e., work-to-family conflict and family can interfere with work. Work Family Conflict (WFC) takes place when the demands of work come in conflict with the time / attention given to family. Workplace characteristics like the number of hours worked per week, the amount and frequency of overtime required, an inflexible work schedule, unsupportive supervisor, and an inhospitable organizational culture create conflict between the work and family role. Family-work conflict (FWC) is also a type of inter-role conflict in which family and work responsibilities are not compatible. 1.8.6 Types of Work Life Conflict Three types of conflict have been identified in literature: time-based, strain-based, and behaviour based (Greenhaus and Beutell, 1985).
