It is far too easy to get pulled into checking work emails at home, or even on the way home on your phone. This age of constant connectedness creates a pressure to always be productive, making unplugging a challenge. Ironically, unplugging is essential for optimal productivity. When you’re away from work, over evenings and weekends, make the effort to fully unplug and give your attention to your family, loved ones, and leisure time. This is the only way to guarantee that you’ll return to work replenished and ready to take on anything.
