Yesterday, my e-mail was disabled the entire day due to a dropbox password hack. At first, I was really stressed out. However, after I was told that that it won’t work at least until the next day, I was so…. relieved. I don’t need to check my e-mail all day or respond to anyone. What a blessing. There is nothing that can’t wait till tomorrow, and I am not even on vacation. This is way more than just a day off, as many of us are guilty of sending even more e-mail on our days off than during our working days.
I highly recommend having your e-mail hacked – just for a day or at least for a few hours. It feels good, and it forces you to do other things during those many hours that you sit and refresh your browser.
