Remember when workers regularly left the office at 5 p.m. to enjoy a relaxing evening with their families, never to hear a peep from their employers or coworkers until they returned to work the next morning? Or sat back with a magazine while in flight on a business trip, leaving them rejuvenated and ready to tackle work once they reached their destination?

For most full-time office employees, these memories are either distant or nonexistent. Thanks to smartphones, our jobs follow us around everywhere – to the airport, the dinner table and even to bed. Recent surveys have pointed to a rise in off-the-clock emailing, including one by Adobe Systems, which found 50% of workers check email while resting in bed. (So much for the resting part!)
