BBC – Future – Health – Email: A psychological self-defence course

This piece is relevant to our discussion of videogames and particularly to the reading for next week.

Problems with an overflowing inbox? It’s not just technical issues, understanding how and why we respond to emails could help relieve the stress.

Here’s a pretty safe assumption to make: you probably feel like you’re inundated with email, don’t you? Its a constant trickle that threatens to become a flood. Building up, it is always nagging you to check it. You put up spam filters and create sorting systems, but it’s never quite enough. And that’s because the big problems with email are not just technical – theyre psychological. If we can understand these well all be a bit better prepared to manage email, rather than let it manage us.
