Schedule Blocks of ‘Tech-Free’ Time to Reduce Stress at Work
The Dumb Little Man contends that a block of quiet time is essential to staying fresh: "If you are constantly connected to or looking at a device, there is no way your mind will be allowed to think 100% clearly. If you respond to each email or notification as they come in, you will constantly be sidetracked. While it's extremely important to respond to messages, you need to set aside a block of quiet time each day so that you can relax and refresh. You could set an hour a day where you ignore your inbox completely. Better yet, set half hour blocks throughout the day where you remain 'unconnected' from devices so that you can truly focus and be at peace."
