Click through for 10 tips to help you manage your mobile work/life balance, as identified David Lavenda from harmon.ie.

The mobile world has done wonders for the 'anytime, anywhere productivity.' We can now work productively with the flexibility the modern employee needs to balance work and life. At least, that was the promise.

The reality is that an always-on mobile lifestyle, and the resulting expectations from employers and clients, often cause burnout in the long run. Mobile access comes at a price. Saving that hour-long commute to the office means we are now expected to work overtime, before and after office hours. Our inability to fully unplug from work is becoming a problem that affects our personal lives. Multiple studies have found a correlation between mobile device use for work and a deterioration in our physical, mental and interpersonal relationship health.

And while most of us think that the challenge to work/life balance is a manifestation of the Internet and mobile device era, people have been struggling with this balance for generations. Throughout history, people have struggled with work/life disruptions wrought by the introduction of new technology … from the appearance of written communication to the invention of the printing press.

harmon.ie's David Lavenda shares 10 practical ways to maintain a healthy work/life balance and keep your sanity – some are timeless and some are new to our modern era – in a world where we are constantly asked to work at anytime, from any location.
