St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - So many of us spend all year looking forward to spending time with our families around the Christmas tree or the dinner table. But even though you're out of the office, you might still be checking your inbox.

We brought in someone to First@Four to help you really unplug: Jason Womack, the author of 'Your Best Just Got Better.'

Womack says one way you can make sure you can really enjoy your downtime isn't by working more hours, but by using the hours we have in a better way. He also discusses working smarter, guidelines for using gadgets in your off-time, and balancing work and family responsibilities.
