Email Apnea – It’s a thing
Email Apnea – It’s a thing

You’ve heard of sleep apnea, but have you heard of email apnea? Some people apparently get so engrossed in typing an email that they stop breathing. Experts estimate that 80-percent of people have picked up the habit, and they say it could be seriously damaging to our health.

People with email apnea usually begin to feel light-headed before they realize they’re holding their breath, and constantly holding your breath can cause the body to launch into a stress response.

Former Apple executive Linda Stone says, “Are we more obese and diabetic because of a
combination of holding our breath off and on all day and then failing to move
when our bodies have prepared us to do so?” Stone recommends catching
email apnea by monitoring your breathing, becoming more aware of anxious
feelings and even using a heart-rate monitor if necessary.
