Unplugging from Tech

It takes about 23 minutes to return to an original task once work is interrupted by a digital distraction.

We let others know we’re working every time we send an email or message, take care to send it when both parties are likely to be available 

Use social media to let people know when you are taking time off and when you’ll be back on the grid 

Working from home may require setting an alarm to go off at the end of your work day so that you can leave the work behind physically and mentally (from Irresistible:  The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked by NYU marketing professor Adam Alter)

Take a day off from being connected 

No one who ever took a day of rest regretted it – do it more often.
