Perhaps the more important question is not how did we conduct business without a smart phone or iPad but, rather, how do we survive with them? With 24/7 accessibility and the speed of information transfer ever increasing, so do our stress levels. The race to keep up with the pace blurs the line between urgent and important. We feel compelled to respond to every incoming byte of information (OMG we even call them ALERTS!) as quickly as they pop up on the screen. The stress piles up along with all those messages in your inbox and emotions like worry or anxiety or frustration, irritation or resignation go on overdrive.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the negative impact stress has on body and mind. So what can you do?
