How to better separate your work and personal life on Android
I don’t know about you, but I am positively exhausted.
The line between work and personal time has all but evaporated these days — and these crazy little computers in our pockets keep us connected to emails, chats, to-do lists, and tasks 24/7, whether we want it or not.
It’s the blessing and the curse of the modern work world: While there are certainly times where that constant connection can be an asset, there are also plenty of moments where it can be an energy-draining drag.
And here’s the thing: Android itself actually has some thoughtful tools for managing that division and separating your work life from your personal time — but those tools are available only if your phone is part of a company-connected, enterprise-managed arrangement. That means if you’re working in a bring-your-own-device sort of setup or in any other situation where a dedicated “work phone” isn’t provided, you’re pretty much out of luck and left with a jumbled, boundary-free mess of professional and personal stuff.
