I recently read an article in the Harvard Business Review that provided suggestions on how to leave work at work at the end of the day.

I also read the blog post written by MASSP's Past President Tracy Wilson about the importance of being present in your own life.

Both of these articles gave me food for thought in terms of how difficult it is to turn my work brain off and to devote time to my own personal life. This week, let's talk about strategies for making the transition from work to home and how to gain that balance.
