Off. Over. And Out.

Connectivity aids productivity. It can also be counterproductive by generating that contemporary state of anxiety, in which focus on any activity is interrupted by the irresistible urge to check e-mail or texts, whose absence can, in turn, provoke the compounded anxiety of feeling unloved or unwanted just because the in-box is empty.
