Do you kick start your day with a mug of coffee and your e-mails? If yes, then you might want to change your routine. Studies show that if you are in a habit of checking out e-mails very often, you may be creating a lot of pressure on yourself. This happens because you have to multitask. You may get e-mails that deal with a variety of issues from work tasks, family problems, to-do lists that may prove overwhelming.
