There is one study shown that the managers take at least one hour to deal with e-mail, extending their workweek by an average of five hours. The study also shown that only 17 percent people who use e-mail can answer their e-mails in the same day.

As you notice things seems they are tending to fall apart all around you, spend five minutes and draw. Seriously. Take a pencil and a blank paper and write the chaos around you, or something peaceful. You can use another part of your brain to focus on something outside of the chaos itself; it can give you a much-needed break.
2. Manage your e-mail. There are about 5.5 trillion e-mails sent each year. The number is still increasing 40 percents each year. This electronic form of communication has become a main source of workplace stress. One study found that managers spend more than one hour each day on e-mail, that is to say they spend an average of five hours one week. The study also shown that only 17 percent people who use e-mail can answer their e-mails in the same day. To handle:
When you read the e-mails once, answer them as quickly as you can, delete if it is possible, or you can move them to folders, a leadership expert suggests. If there are too many e-mails in your in-box, they may make you depressed and take too long to reads and sort.
Insert e-mails responses in the subject line no matter when it is possible rather than you manage to compose a new information each time. And answer e-mail only when you have something to say.
Do not and never send an e-mail if you are angry. You can write it then save it when you get calm down.
You can choose to use the automatic signature function in your e-mail so that people can call you through snail mail.
Do not waste your time receiving e-mail. Also do not e-mail and phone with the same information.
Avoid inserting the address of recipient before composing the e-mail message, a Ph.D. says. Because if you do this, which could mean you send an information mistakenly before it is finished.
3. Listen to Muzak in your office. One study found that the people who listen to Muzak could reduce not only their feeling of stress but also their levels of stress hormones.
4. Go talk to your best friend at work. Studies find that social support at work is related with lower blood pressure during your workday and smaller blood pressure can increase even during work-related stressful moments.
5. Rub a drop of lavender oil on your wrist. The aroma of lavender or cucumber oil can make you relax pretty well. Close your eyes, hold your wrist up to your nose and smell deeply, imagining you are in the field of lavender in Provence.
