Another plan to reduce work stress was devised yesterday.
The next step to reduce stress at work is reduce the feeling that im in a non-stop emergency I get all the time.
It’s a constant barrage of urgent – or even more urgent – emails interrupting my work and “do you have a minute I need that information now” calls.
So, I decided to close my email programm. And only open it when I need some information for work. I set two reminders to check and answer email, so I won’t forget about if (as if!).
And no, I don’t have a minute, but I can set up an appointment to answer all your questions later.
Let’s see how that works. I hope it gets me out of this feeling I’m living in a constant train wreck and get some peace back into my workday.
