Another Notch on the Stress Barometer

Back to the phone. A simple working definition for stress that I’ve distilled from listening to and reading much wiser people is: my level of stress is a good measure of how far I am from the “here and now”. From this perspective, being always on, always ready to respond to an incoming call or text/sms can only add to my stress levels.

Sometimes it’s good just to switch off and be here.
