Today, the line between work and home life has become blurred for millions of office-based workers. Between email and omnipresent smartphones, tablets, and computers, work messages and calls are omnipresent. While many people appreciate the flexibility resulting from these technological advances, others suffer.
‘Always-on’ culture results in unspoken pressure to respond to work emails and answer calls at all times. And it takes a psychological toll. In a recent study, 28% of office workers said they were unable to switch off during their free time, and 20% reported mental exhaustion. The result? Anxiety disorders and burnout.
