Quit Your Addiction to Email!

Many of us send and receive hundreds of emails per day. Suffice to say, checking your inbox every time you receive a notification can become a problem.

Even if you try to ignore the inbox, the incoming notifications remind you there are emails sitting there.

Unread.

“Who’s it from?” “What might be in it?” “Is it good or bad news?”  These thoughts can sap your attention as your brain will keep thinking about it and distracting you from doing what you need to be doing.

You’re better off to turn your email program off rather than hearing that constant ping, or seeing those notifications and attempting to ignore those messages.

Here are 3 things you can do to ease your email addiction …

  • Disable push notifications
  • Turn your email program off altogether
  • Block out specific times throughout the day to work on your email

It’s time you took control of email vs email controlling you.

Quit your addiction to email … get more done.

 

Do you check your email all day long? How is it impacting your productivity? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
