Self-management psychology has a vital role in the development of personality, particularly in balancing the factors of work and personal life. Work-life balance is affected by a variety of personal situation. This study is focusing on the effects of emotional intelligence, depression, anxiety and stress on work-life balance among Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) officers and members. The research design of the study is descriptive and cross-sectional which is a quantitative research method. The target respondents were officers and members of RMAF. A total of 4914 officers and members were involved in answering questionnaires that were distributed to all air force bases in Malaysia. The results showed there is a moderate positive relationship among emotional intelligence (EI) and work-life balance (WLB) which p=0.001 <0.05, r=0.596. There is a low negative relationship between depression, anxiety, stress (DAS) and work-life balance with a value of p-0.001 <0.05, r=-0.438. The results of this study have proven that the research can be used as a guide and framework in the implementation of programs and activities to strengthen the psychological aspects of self-control among the members and then produce RMAF personnel who are able to balance work and daily lifestyle.
