Step out of the Information Shower - Interruption Management

As writer Kevin Donahue observes: The managing editor of MensHealth.com, a married father of two whose job requires him to be plugged in 24-7, began weaning himself from his cell phone. Davids Swink's goal was to leave office stress in the office. “Make your smartphone workS for you, rather than be at its mercy,” recommended Swink, chief creative officer of Strategic Interactions.

He suggested putting the phone in a drawer, turning off the ringer, and setting up a regular time every couple of hours to check and answer e-mail for 5 minutes.

After doing Swink concluded, “I needed more like 10 minutes per session! But overall, I felt cleansed, less stressed, and was more engaged with my family. Those mini-interruptions – not just work, but Twitter, Facebook, and e-mail from friends – really take a toll!” -
