Is checking your email making you stressed?

 

Does the thought of opening your email inbox in the morning fill you with dread?

Or are you guilty of checking them countless times throughout the day?

Email StressEmail anxiety is a big thing - both in your personal and professional life – but research released this week has shown that keeping track of those messages could actually be the reason you’re feeling stressed out.

Enter: The Daily Message.

The brainchild of Twitter co-founder, Evan Williams has proposed the idea for ‘a messaging service/app that only delivers once a day’. The concept means you can see all your messages from the last 24 hours, reply, and then switch off.

And, much like a traditional post-box, your replies all get delivered at the same time. Ever wished you could delete an email after hitting send? With this app, you could! If of course, you don’t ‘miss the post’.

We’re living in such a fast-paced, modern world where having our offices at our fingertips really does have its pros. You can work remotely, you can check in with colleagues wherever you are, and you can always know what’s going on.

But that too, has its drawbacks.

We’re constantly ‘on’; replying to messages out of hours and always hitting refresh, afraid of missing something.

Sound familiar?

While “The Daily Message” is, at the moment, just an idea; I certainly think that the concept is a great one. It’ll give you so much time back, and you’ll have much more freedom – and time – to work on your business, and not in it.

What do you think? Is it something you’d use?
