The stressful working life makes impossible to disconnect from clients and co-workers e-mails, deals to negotiate or endless meetings. In lots of occasions, working doesn’t finish on weekends. Disconnecting from work is each day a harder task. Out of the work context, we still have to answer personal massages or social media notifications.
Nowadays ‘disconnecting’ isn’t possible for everyone. Switching off the notifications or choosing the flight mode is an ideal that in many cases we just can’t achieve. At least we’ll always have holidays for disconnecting the mind and notifications, right?
