To prevent this stage of complete exhaustion it is essential to reflect on and clarify personal values and choices. Spending time with family and friends, religious or spiritual activity, self-care, including nutrition, exercise, and a supportive spouse or partner serve as key factors in balancing work and life. In addition, it is important to control the workload, find a meaning in work, and settle limits as well as learn to use administrative support systems adequately. As John Gardner puts it: "Meaning is not something you stumble across, like the answer to a riddle or the prize in a treasure hunt. Meaning is something you build into your life. You build it out of your own past, out of your affections and loyalties . . out of your own talent and understanding, out of the things you believe in, out of the things and people you love, out of the values for which you are willing to sacrifice something." To maintain the work-life balance it turns out to be crucial to define values and to ask fundamental questions about the reasons why you chose your profession, the areas where you think you are irreplaceable, and what would you like your life to be like in 10 years?
