Social scientists now advise striving for firm work-life boundaries, as opposed to stressing yourself out trying to maintain a perfect (and, let’s face it, elusive) “balance”. They’ve defined three styles of boundary setters: the separator (who completely switches off from work outside of the 9-to-5), the integrator (who divides work and personal time into smaller chunks during the day – usually reserved for those in a high enough position to stroll out of the office for a spa appointment at 3pm, then return at 5pm to finish a report), and the cycler – those who have weeks of intense grafting, followed by more chilled time, such as accountants or seasonal business owners. Studies show having time out can make employees more productive, so take that to heart and let yourself really clock off. If this sounds impossible, limit yourself to one hour on Saturdays and write draft messages, but don’t send them until Monday – weekends aren’t the time to kick-start a conversation. There are plenty of smoothie bowls to be Instagrammed and ’90s club nights that deserve your attention instead.
