Managing Information Overload

Consider how much information each of us has to process on an hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Whether in print or paperless, we are bombarded with information, some of it relevant and some of it a waste of our time. Studies show that people can only keep six or seven items in their head before forgetfulness and confusion comes into play. Worse yet, being buried by information can lead to stress and negative emotions and health results.
