Being able to be in touch via e-mail -- ALL the time -- can be a great thing if there’s a crisis or if something needs your attention after you’re done working for the day. But for too many people, it’s just a source of stress.
However, there’s one simple way for you and your company to keep that stress to a minimum: Make sure your e-mails are clearly worded and are explicit about when you expect a response. In other words, if someone is sending an e-mail after business hours but it’s not urgent, they should simply say something like, “Please get back to me in the morning.”
And even during normal hours, it can still lower the stress levels if you let the recipient know you don’t expect an immediate reply. (Study Finds)
