When it comes to setting boundaries around work, we often think of technology as an obstacle, but in fact – technology can be a handy tool in setting and keeping boundaries around work. 

One example of using technology to help keep boundaries around work is to utilize calendars, timers, and alert systems to help you stay on track with your time.  In order for this strategy to work, it’s important to schedule both professional and personal tasks on your calendar in order to keep anything from getting overlooked. Don’t forget to also schedule time for mindfulness, relaxation, and doing nothing! If you don’t schedule, you are less likely to do it.
