1. #1 Denmark

As always, Denmark ranks at the top of the list for countries that boast a high standing of living, healthy work-life balance and excellent career opportunities. Only 2% of employees work long hours and the time devoted to leisure and personal care is 16.31 hours per day.

Achieving a healthy work-life balance is a goal that many working professionals fail to achieve in their lifetime. Due to a competitive marketplace, many companies now require employees to put in long hours, work weekends, avoid taking time off for holidays, and to always keep their eyes onthe prize so to speak! Essentially, the harder you work and the more hours you put in, the more likely it is that you will progress in the workplace; but this mentality and work ethic is unhealthy and could lead to poor health. It is therefore important that you work in a company (and in a country) that promotes a healthy work-life balance - if this means relocating overseas, then so be it!

Here is a list of the top 10 countries with the healthiest work-life balance. (The list comes from a report from the OECD in 2011).
