Dealing with information overload in an always connected world

3rd November 2016

These days most online apps and site are designed to hook you in. Notifications and alerts abound, and combine that with emails and things like Twitter and Facebook, it can seem like and endless Sisyphean task to deal with it all.

But you don’t have to. You don’t have to read it all. It will still all be there when you next look at it, and to be honest, unless it’s something that you really need to keep up on, is mainly noise.

The following are some tips I find really help me deal with keeping up (or not keeping up!)

TL:DR I love the internet, and am not proposing a puritan like purge of all the things, just be mindful of what you consume and when in a more balanced way, and you will feel less stressed by it all.

As part of National Blog Post Month (#NaBloPoMo) the spin off from the novel writing month that writers often partake in November, I thought I would try and write a few more quick and short posts for November - lets see how far I can go with this.
