I wanted to chat today about work and your personal communication devices. In the current world most people can’t live without their phones.
For me, I read, write, communication, play Pokémon go, shop, listen to music, and listen to podcasts from my phone. Heck I can even write blogs from my cell! (Although I prefer my laptop)
In a world like this where all applications and employee files require your cel phone how do you make boundaries? For me I have blocked everyone accept the supervisor I have to call if I’m sick and my work friends.
There is no reason for me to be contact during or after work hours for work concerns when I have instant message through the patients charts and two work cell phones.
I have had to enforce this boundary using the block caller button on I-phone as it seems three plus ways to communicate with me from 9am-530pm is not enough for some colleagues.
How do you enforce your boundaries to maximize time off and reduce burn out?
