Traditionally, professionals adhered to a strong boundary between their work lives and their personal lives.  There was an unspoken divide between the two worlds, and experiences from one rarely merged into the other.  Thanks to technology and longer work hours, the time devoted to purely personal issues got squeezed.  This resulted in professionals being squeezed.  Early morning workouts are combined with breakfast meetings, and commuting time is constantly spent working. How many parents are on their iphones during school functions for their children? Right.
How organizations handle the fact that their professionals have OTHER lives determines how much stress they pass along to those same professionals who are trying frantically to straddle both spheres of their lives.  The stress created from families demanding more attention - simultaneously with organizational demands for more productivity/revenue/client meetings, etc. is a dance we all try to accomplish with grace. 
But here's the question: does the organization and/or profession you've chosen allow you to have a full life? Are you encouraged to participate in community events, charitable endeavors, family events - not to mention take time for your own mental and physical health (a yoga class or a run at lunch?).  I hear silence.
Consider the research from Teresa Amabile (Director of Research at Harvard Business School):
"Gallup quantified the link between employee feelings and corporate outcomes, reporting that lost productivity due to employee disengagement costs more than $300 billion in the U.S. annually." (Amabile, T.M. & Kramer, S.J. 2012. How leaders kill meaning at work. McKinsey Quarterly, Jan. 2012).
Net: how we FEEL about ourselves at work translates into the work product we output. 
Whether we are fulfilled about our lives, or completely stressed actually factors into our performance.  Of course it makes sense, but stop and think about allowing yourself to be happier at work.  The benefits to you AND to your organization may just be worth it.
