    The job that we are doing today does not have a good work life balance and then when we want to strike the chord of happiness and good health it becomes difficult.
    I am working in a corporate and in we have frequent visit of counselors in our company. This is basically to ensure that we have don't have something in our mind that is troubling us because of workplace or personal reason.
    Many schools have a counselor who understands the mental setup of children and advice them which career they should choose.
    You can pursue your masters. Clear UGC NET exam and become a professor in a degree college which is the best job.
