Simple work/life balance hack: multiple email apps

If you absolutely need to check your work email on your phone (or any other devices), to protect your headspace in the evenings and on weekends, try using different email apps for work and home.

We use Front at work and I use Spark at home—because it has similar capabilities to Front for sharing, collaborating on drafts, and commenting on emails, which are super useful at home, too.

But, you could easily use Gmail and Apple Mail to achieve the same result for free.

The key is to ensure one email app has work accounts and the other has personal accounts.

And, then, it’s simply a matter of discipline to not check your work email in your downtime.
