1. Hi Curt-Are you able to resist checking work email on your phone in the evening? This is my Achilles heel. I check it all evening and on the weekends. Any advice on how to break this habit would be appreciated!

    • Linda — I used to check my email at night all the time. Early mornings and late nights were the biggest problems. I just took a week of getting down the habit of batching emails. After that, it became much easier to resist the pull of the inbox. For the first two weeks, I actually would disable the mail app on my smartphone at times that weren’t scheduled batch-checking times, or before/after hours. People should learn not to rely on email for urgent requests or tasks.
