Leave it at the Office

Since getting a smartphone in late November, I've had 24 hour access to my work email, without having to log on to a computer. For awhile I thought that was "cool" and convenient. It's handy to check my email when I'm on my way to a jobsite, or check the weather or read the news at any time.
It's not so cool that I also get email when I'm on vacation. I turn off the auto-sync feature just so I can rest, otherwise I hear that "ping" and wonder what the email is about.
Smartphones are a good invention, and are handy for keeping in touch, but they also make it harder to leave the work at the office. They make it difficult to clock out and turn your mind off of work.
