The line between work life and home life is blurring at increasing speed for millions of Americans. With the growing prevalence of smart phones and higher expectations at work, Americans are feeling more and more overburdened by their work life.

According to a recent study done by Hyatt Hotels ®, 83% of respondents affirmed that they frequently perform work tasks at home and 59% said they attend to home matters at work. Unemployment breached 10% this year, and statistics from the Conference Board, a research firm, show that productivity in America rose by 2.5% during thee same period, as remaining employees picked up the slack from laid off colleagues.
