Employees have never had a harder time staying focused on the task at hand. Distractions have become so prevalent that today only 45% of employees’ time goes to primary job duties. The average employee wastes more than 8 hours of each workweek, and more than half of that time takes place on a mobile device. All this multitasking and that pile of read-but-not-responded-to emails cause employees significant stress. Unfortunately, two out of three workers say their employer is doing nothing to help them cope with stress, leading 42% of employees to report having left a position because of work-related stress. Recently, the CDC identified stress as the number one workforce health issue. Fortunately, a growing body of research on our connected lives offers fresh insights on how to live productive, calm lives.
