eMails are worse for you than marijuana or not sleeping

A recent study found that British workers’ IQ test scores drop by an average of 10 points when they juggle phones, eMails and other electronic gadgets & messages.
The study also discovered that the drop even is greater than after test candidates smoked a joint or lost a night’s sleep.
Needless to say, while we have great technology in the workplace, you can’t beat going to work stoned… eh, no I don’t mean that! I mean we still need to think hard about how technology is being used and what its side affects are.
It seems to me that it’s only an excuse to dump more work on our desks.
