Study: Shutting off E-Mail Lowers Stress Levels

 

A recently released study by researchers in California proves that employees who stopped checking their e-mail for five days enjoyed less stress and better focus.

"We couldn´t see a discernible trend on days 1 and 2. But at day 5, the pattern started to become clear: People became less stressed after being away from e-mail," says Gloria Mark of the University of California.

Instead of checking their e-mails the study participants were asked to talk on the phone or face-to-face to their colleagues. "People said they felt liberated, and the euphoria lasted for a few days," Mark also said.

You are so right! I hardly ever open my Email´s and between spam and the snooping on the internet, I can barley muster up half of the interest I once had.
