Default Ignore your e-mail for more productive, less stressful workday

From http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/news/...ic-workday.ars

Ignoring your e-mail may be essential to making your work pace less frenetic, according to a study done of workers at a scientific research center. While the study has some flaws, it speaks more broadly to the importance of taking control of how work time is spent, particularly when it feels dictated by outside sources.

In the study, a group of 13 volunteers vowed to go on a no-e-mail diet for five days, with all new e-mails received during that period bypassing the inbox and a rule against sending any new e-mail. Researchers monitored both the heart rate of participants as well as the activity on their computer screens during the e-mail vacation and during a three-day control period of e-mail use.
