Just have a break
New media have revolutionized the way we work and offer unprecedented opportunities and opportunities. Simply switching off is not possible. Sometimes we just want to put our head next to the keyboard and sleep. The crux is to use computer, internet and Co. properly.
If we do not do this and forget to press the "off" button, the technology will not enrich our existence, it will only complicate it.
6 Tips for the correct handling of the technology
- Conversely, plan your own communication accordingly and use different channels. When you send an email, you allow your counterpart not to respond immediately. If it is urgent, call.
- Sort exactly who to whom you provide what information. Do not become a spammer; not everyone must always be involved in everything. If you protect others from the virus-like spread of worthless information, you end up protecting yourself.
- Create a trouble-free environment in which you can work in peace. If this is not possible permanently, set up fixed times in which you can not be reached by telephone and do not ask for e-mails.
- Speaking of emails: Ask yourself whether you need to receive any new message immediately by an optical and / or acoustic signal, and whether the time intervals for fetching emails can not be any greater.
- On days when you feel very restless and jump from one task to the next without ever completing one, you can try to concentrate on a project for a previously defined timeframe (eg five minutes). Sounds simple, but can be difficult.
- Target your brain with complex chunks instead of small bites, challenge it and train yourself to concentrate on one thing. Read the editorial in “Time”. Read a book or join a book club now. Learn something new. Go to the theater (and it's best to read what the play is all about).
