How often do you check your email when you’re on vacation? The experts say don’t do it! A survey found that employees who check their email while taking time off not only made their fellow employees nervous, but also raised anxiety levels and conflict among their significant others. The result is chronic stress and poor physical and mental health. As for those whose jobs require them to be connected all the time, the study recommends they should “engage in mindfulness practices” to take the edge off. Sure.
