Stop tech taking over your life; do these simple things

In many ways, the proliferation of technology both in and out of the workplace has been a disaster for the wellbeing of professionals.

Whilst the latest generations of smartphones, paper-thin laptops and smart-capable technology everywhere we turn, from the TV to the fridge, from billboards to our own lightbulbs (yes, you can now buy smart bulbs that will flash when you receive an email), separating your digital life at work from your home life is almost impossible, as the two are so confusingly intertwined. Often, smartphones are the first thing we check in the mornings, and the last thing we see at night – and right there, next to your Twitter app, or your Facebook app, is your work emails, your work chat system and your text inbox. Instead of leaving the office and forgetting your stress for the day, being connected to the professional sphere is always just a single click away.
