Conquer CyberOverload. That is the book that was sent to me by Joanne Cantor, Ph.D. She sees that this is becoming an addiction, a disease of the brain. It eats up our time, our memory and increases stress. We become less creative and I know I get very irritable when I am suffering from way too much online work to do. I loved some of the tips and have started using them.
- Be the master of your interruptions. Simple, just turn off our gadgets so we are not bothered by them when we are busy with our life. IE. Dinner time with the family.
- Manage that email monsoon. Oh that I did do! Blocked spam, unsubscribed from mailing list, and filtered emails into folders. I love the spam button on the top of my mail list. If it is spam I click it. Soon a lot of that was off my inbox and in my trash!
- Know when to take a break. Yeah there are times we have to back away from the computer. And get up and enjoy the beauty and day around us. And do you agree that our eyes start swimming around when we have had way too much time online.
