Work-Life Balance: How to Disconnect

Perhaps the best way of all to disconnect from work is to get all your coworkers in on the action. Maeghan Ouimet cites a book in which workers at Boston Consulting Group were challenged to take turns taking the night off completely from work. The caveat is that they had to meet once a week to talk about their feelings regarding the night off. As it turns out, the experiment was successful enough that all of BCG adopted the measure. It seems that talking in a group forces colleagues to understand what is important to each other and to plan smarter and more efficiently around those things. Check out the original article on tips on how to adopt such a policy in your organization.
