Benefits of habit “Check your email regularly”

✓ Maintains professional appearance
✓ Helps develop time management skills
✓ Helps schedule the day ahead
✓ Reduces stress
✓ Increases productivity

First step:

Check your email 1 time this morning


1, Start by checking your email once in the morning. Do it as soon as you get to the office or other workspace
2. Tomorrow, do the same, most importantly, at the same time
3. Keep it up every morning for a week
4. Next week, add one day where you check your email just after lunch
5. Keep adding checking times until you’re confident you’re checking the email regularly

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. Like with any habit, to develop one, the action must be done at the same time. With email, we recommend starting with mornings, as it will contribute to your day planning.
✓ Trigger your mind. Put an empty envelope at your desk so it would constantly remind you of digital letters waiting for you.
✓ Let the app help. Set the reminder in this app to remind you when the time comes to check your email.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’re gone at least 2 weeks of regular email check, reward yourself by booking a place at the restaurant you always wanted to go…via email! Use the new habit acquired to its fullest and treat yourself!

Tips for beginners:

✓ Louder sound. You may want to increase the sound of email notifications on your phone so you would be constantly reminded of your emails.
✓ Less spam. If you’re struggling to check your email and even then it’s riddled with spam and unwanted mails, dedicate time to unsubscribe to unwanted newsletters and promotions. It will clear up your inbox and make the whole experience much more enjoyable.
✓ Professionalism. Remember that your email is more or less your signature and the first and last representation of you. Commit to looking great and answer all your emails diligently.
