Working hard and letting their hair down too

youth survey

Chasing their dreams might mean hard work, but it's not an all-work-and-no-play situation for the youth. According to the survey, an overwhelming number of young people - 75.5% - agreed to the work hard, party harder mantra.

At least 56.5% agreed that all aspects of life - work, family and leisure - must be integrated. Young people such as Navmeeta Roy and Shivani Bhattacharya feel that while it's important to work hard when they can, taking time out for themselves is also a part of their lifestyles.

"There's a difference between being a workaholic, and being passionate about your work. It's important to maintain that work-life balance. I like to spend quality time with my family," says Bhattacharya.

Roy says that while her job is interesting, she makes sure there's always time for her true passion - painting. "I am an artist too, and giving time to my passion helps me unwind and keep up with the multitudes of things that I am capable of doing," she says.
