Overloaded with Instructions

I get it. I have a lot of ailments so I am in a lot of groups and follow a lot of organizations for their health tips. So I get lots of email. Tons of email to be precise. Some of it gets the delete button right away - especially if the subject line doesn't tell me anything.

But then I read glance at a lot of them before deleting. But often they provide suggestions or instructions how to be healthier for whichever ailment. But now I am overloaded with instructions/suggestions this week:

This is a partial list of what I have received this week. Last week there was something about coffee being bad. I have gotten instructions on so many things, I can get confused (which is not difficult at times). 

I realize one option is to stop reading about my ailments and receiving these emails. But I think it is important to understand as much as possible on your ailments. The more you understand about what is wrong with your body and what you can do to improve your situation.

On the other hand, it is definitely an overload. I do not have time to read all the emails I get. I pick and choose which get deleted immediately. Some I save for more in depth reading scanning at a later point. 

So not only do I get bombarded with ailments, I also get overloaded with instructions. Sometimes I cope by taking a nap or going to the gym to burn off stress. A nap usually sounds best.
