I am online in some capacity most hours of the day, evening and night. When I'm not at the computer, I have my BlackBerry by my side so I can keep on top of my email and what's going on in the world. While it's easiest for me to stay connected and on top of communication, I do set limits and try to make time to decompress, detach, and rest my eyes. Unplugging is one of the ways I maintain a healthy work-life balance.
That being said, I know most people don't thrive off staying as "clocked in" as I am. Technology is amazing in that it allows us to stay supremely connected, but it also ensures most of us work on weekends and rack up more than 40 hours of work during the week. Do you check your work email when you're not at the office via your phone or home computer, or do you choose to let the inbox fill up until you sit down at your desk in the morning?
