Letting your email inbox dictate your life is completely unmanageable.

I would hop from one email to another. As soon as one came in I felt compelled to respond straight away, even when I was in the park on a Saturday playing with my kids!

I have learned to identify priorities, relax, and not get worked up about making my inbox urgent.

It is my life and I want to be in control of it, not my inbox or someone else’s urgent matter, which can often wait or in many cases simply vanish.

Learn to prioritise what is directly in front of you – stay present with what truly matters in your life.

Otherwise, you are a slave to your email and will ultimately lead to burnout and overwhelm.
