Work-Life Balance: Set Limits on Work Talk

There aren’t many advantages to a long commute to and from work. It’s the price you pay for living in the country and working in the city. Sure, you may be able to catch up on some podcasts and use your vehicle as a mobile office to some extent, but it doesn’t make the rush hour traffic any more entertaining.

That type of separation can be a key step to helping your work life balance.
