If you're thinking "my inbox is a mess", you're not alone.
Emails are an integral part of everyday life, and it's pretty evident on a daily basis. You have a pile of emails for work, weekly and monthly newsletters you need to read (and the list getting larger), recurring bills and multiple notifications from a variety of products and services that want your attention.
Your attention is limited!
It is SO easy to lose focus on the task at hand and start answering mundane emails. It's not healthy or productive to perform mental context switching every 5 minutes and you realise you hadn't finished the most important tasks of the day.
This is how a typical day looks like for many people around the world.
So, why not do something about it?
One way to manage your inbox is to use technology to help you manage it. If you're using Gmail, then your solution is right in front of you. Silent Inbox let's you take control of your inbox. You choose when you'd want to receive emails, creating an obvious but effective way to limit distractions. They don't even show up in your inbox in the beginning, and neatly tucked away in another folder until you want it somewhere else. Has Gmail built anything like this? We don't think so.
So give it a shot, Silent Inbox is easy to add and takes minutes to set up.
