With this strategy, you won’t waste time checking emails constantly throughout the day.
Instead, you’ll establish an end-of-day email routine. Research found that people who check their emails three times a day respond to the same amount of emails 20 percent faster than those who constantly respond to messages as they came in.
MORE IDEAS ON THIS
There’s no reason to treat emails like they are emergencies.
Try responding as slowly as you can get away with, be it hours, days or even weeks. If something is truly important, let people know to call or text.
Eventually, this practice will reset expectations.
You do not need to constantly check and respond to every new email message.
Treat email like an old-fashioned paper letter that gets sent once a day.
Most workplaces have an unreasonable expectation that you’ll check email during your time off.
During your vacation, act as if you’re off the grid.
For those with less restraint, consider an app that will prevent you from checking your email at unscheduled times.
Unless your job demands otherwise, deal with email at the end of the day.
Less energy at the end of the day makes you less tempted to overcommit to incoming requests.
... if you’re just receiving several emails a day. Otherwise, strive to empty your inbox out once a week.
More like this
Treat checking emails as you would any other tasks: a to-do. Schedule specific times in your calendar to process email. And reduce the times you check email to 2 per day: one in the late morning and another in the late evening.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
