Turn off the digital chatter and save your sanity (at work)

Blog reader (and good friend) Seth Dechtman pointed me to an interesting article (Lost In Email) from the New York Times that talks about how companies are trying to tackle information overload and constant interruptions at work.

These companies are smart to deal with this issue. My own research confirms that overload combined with the constant interruption of incoming emails makes work more stressful and leads to depression and lost productivity (The NEDS Study).

What can you come up with to help your company break free from the shackles of always on? Post your replies in comments.
