During the pandemic, normal citizens in many countries have been forced to work from home. At the same time, going to the cinema and bars, meeting with friends were not available.
The concept of remote work continues to be popular today, despite the lifting of restrictions related to COVID-19.
As a result the lines between professional and personal are blurred, and many experience burnout while working from home, working more hours than they should. Establishing a healthy balance between work time and personal time has become a very important topic. It turned out that not in all countries this ratio is the same — in any case, this is the conclusion reached by the creators of the new “Index of work-life balance”.
Cities in Europe were ranked taking into account factors such as the average number of hours worked per year, travel time to the office and duration of annual paid leave. Human, everyday indicators were also taken into account: the average duration of sleep every night, the possibility and frequency of vacations abroad per year, the level of happiness/well-being and the level of income for each family member.
So, here is the TOP -10 most comfortable cities in Europe in terms of opportunities to live and work without stress.
- Copenhagen, Denmark
- Reykjavik, Iceland
- Oslo, Norway
- Helsinki, Finland
- Stockholm, Sweden
- Frankfurt, Germany
- Linz, Austria
- Klagenfurt, Austria
