Weg met de E-stress !!

Voor de meeste mensen maken email, voce mail, gsm, faxmachines, piepers deel uit van ons dagdagelijkse leven, ze zorgen voor werkdagen waarvan de uren niet meer netjes afgebakend zijn en ze bezorgen ons minder tijd voor onszelf. Hoe meer we toegang hebben tot verschillnde vormen van communicatietechnologie, hoe groter onze “to-do”lijstjes worden.

25 jaar geleden belde je met de telefoon; als iemand niet thuis was, rinkelde het toestel een aantal keer en dat was alles. De gebelde werd niet verwittigd dat hij gebeld was; het was aan de beller om zelf terug te bellen. Maar met de komst van voicemail is het nu aan de gebelde om zelf terug te bellen. Als we in deze tijd niet direct terugbellen worden we zelfs anti-sociaal genoemd.

Als je je op mailingslists van bepaalde onderwerpen hebt geabonneerd, dan word je gebombardeerd met tientallen emails per dag.

De voordelen én de last van onze technologie is toegenomen met handpalms, laptops en zo verder. Zelfs televisie kijken is onwaarschijnlijk ingewikkeld geworden, met afstandbedieningen met ontelbare knopjes die niet alleen je toestel, maar ook nog eens je stereo, je DVD en zelfs je huis kunnen bedienen! Al deze zaken vertalen zich naar e-stress!

Een deel van e-stress is de leer-curve. Het leren omgaan met elk nieuw technologisch speeltje kan soms behoorlijk wat chaos aanrichten bij sommigen. En het leerproces lijkt nooit te stoppen , net zoals de gadgets; ook deze veranderen en vernieuwen constant, zodat de oude versies overbodig worden.

Een ander deel van de e-stress problematiek is het tekort aan privacy. Omdat we op zoveel verschillende manier te bereiken zijn, is er nergens meer een plaats waar we ons rustig en onbereikbaar kunnen terug trekken. Meer nog, we worden zelfs gedwongen om te luisteren naar de luide gesprekken van anderen. Met elke nieuwe manier van communicatie ontstaan er nieuwe verantwoordelijkheden waaraan we moeten voldoen.

Experten noemen deze situatie de multitasking gekte.

Op welke manieren kan je deze e-stress verminderen ? Stel jezelf de volgende vragen…..

  • Hoeveel telefoonlijnen heb je op kantoor ?
  • Hoeveel mensen kunnen jou bereiken ?
  • Hoeveel berichten krijg je via elk medium ? Tel alles eens bij elkaar : je werk-mail, je thuis-mail, je kantoortelefoon, de berichtjes op je gsm, je voice mail, ….
  • Verbetert email je persoonlijke relaties of heb je er eerder nadeel van?
  • Zet jezelf ofline of “unplugged”, voor een bepaalde tijd van de dag. Je kan dit zelf meedelen in een soort van out-of-office reply. Na een tijdje houdt men hier rekening mee;
  • Gebruik je gsm alleen in geval van nood. Geef je nummer alleen aan familie en vrienden.
  • Limiteer je gadgets. Heb je echt die nieuwe PalmPilot nodig? Daarvoor kon je ook zonder.
  • Beperk je tijd op het internet. Geef jezelf een beperkte tijd om dingen op te zoeken.
  • Beperk je bewaarde berichten. Schrijf korte notities op in een boekje of schriftje dat je altijd bij je draagt en wis de boodschappen. Anders besteed je te veel tijd aan het herbeluisteren.
