Tame Your Inbox

checking-your-emails

How often do you check your emails?

I’m guilty of checking my email multiple times a day.

I’m waiting for a reply from someone.
Wondering if anything new has hit the inbox.
But it might be urgent.
I really should be doing something else, but I don’t want to, so I’ll check my email.
I’ve gotten distracted because I was just passing by the computer… and it will only take a moment to check.
Checking.
Checking.

Checking

It’s going to be a difficult habit to break.

But I’m going to try and only check my email twice a day

Once in the morning – I’ve developed a checking-my-email-while-I-drink-my-morning-coffee routine – and once in the afternoons.

I’m also going to close my email once I’ve checked it.

Apparently there are psychological benefits to not checking your emails.

Apparently checking your email stresses you out, and I seriously don’t need any more stress in my life.

So, now is the time to make this change.
