Managing the digi-tech boundaries between your work and home life
9 June 2023 (Online) – updated 12 Sept 2023
A few months ago Carolyn talked through an online presentation to the Sparck team about managing work-home boundaries. The talk covered:
- how and why we blur the boundaries between work and home life
- what the life consequences are and
- how we can find ways to better manage these boundaries.
"You just hacked my brain."

The presentation was followed by 1-2-1 sessions with some of the team, who wanted to talk through their personal boundary-blurring strategies and potentially find ways to improve them. This is the testimonial from one of them:
“I met Carolyn to talk about optimising my productivity. Starting a new role, I wanted to change some of how I had felt in previous jobs and start as I meant to go on. Working full time, often remotely and having two young children I often feel torn, as though I’m not bringing my best self to either work or my family. Carolyn worked through some really practical tips with me, such as setting a timer for bite-sized chunks of focused work and turning off distractions. It’s worked brilliantly!"
