The world is full of noise. Some device is always buzzing or dinging sharing “important information” with us. We connect daily with our cell phones, email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Messenger, etc., etc. Research has been showing that productivity is actually being hurt by the sheer amount of information flowing through our lives, with the average employee receiving no less than 93 emails a day.
Information Overload Day was created by companies to bring awareness to what happens to employees when they are overloaded. This day reminds us that there’s such a thing as too much information, and sometimes this constant inundation can actually have a negative impact on our happiness and productivity.
To help you in this fight, The Morning Thing shared some tips for avoiding information overload.
