Do you ever feel like you just can’t escape your job? With more and more people working from home this year, setting boundaries is more important than ever.

Life Resolutions Principal Psychologist Mary Magalotti is here with some advice to help you reduce work stress:

Three Simple Tips for Setting Boundaries at Work

Be honest: If the work is piling on and you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s important to speak up. Your boss may not even realise how busy you are – try explaining your situation and come prepared with solutions that will work for both you and your manager.

Switch off: If you work from home, it might be tempting to keep on answering those calls and emails long after your workday is done. However, ensuring you get a break from work is important for your productivity, and even more important for your mental health.

Stick to routine: Once your workday is done, it’s done! Don’t overdo the overtime by staying up late on your computer and remember that weekends are weekends for a reason! Take time to enjoy your favourite hobby, or kick back with family and friends.
