Anxiety-free working

Posted on

I feel it really hard to work these days without feeling anxious. A Slack ping here, an interesting tweet there, some emails to answer, articles to read that are piling up... With that set up, not only I can't concentrate, but I deliver poorly. All my mental energy is disseminated and I look like a zombie at the end of the day.

To fix that, I've done the following adjustments to the way I approach spending time with computers:

From all of the above, the ones that have helped me the most are being ok with not keeping up with things, and moving away from quick and unceassing communications that happen on platforms like Twitter, or Slack.

I'm way more relieved now, and I feel I can deliver much better things without feeling anxious at all.
