Speeded up, fragmented, impersonal and exhausting - that's how many people live their lives today. Sixty-four percent of Americans are taking steps to try to reduce stress, according to a 2005 report by the American Psychologists Association. Recent workplace trends are not helping. Articles in "Time" magazine, January 16, 2006, describe the emotional and intellectual fallout from multitasking and increased Internet activity. Dr Edward Hallowall, a psychiatrist, has coined the term Attention Deficit Trait to describe the work-induced disorder he's identified in increasing numbers of his patients, resulting in poor performance, guilt, and anxiety. He's worried about the effects of Web addiction, too - we may be "connected electronically, but disconnected interpersonally," he says.
