I am trying (now that it no longer gives me heart palpitations 100% of the time) to keep up with my email without letting it take over. This afternoon I spent two hours checking my email every five minutes so I could instantly respond to anything in my inbox and keep said inbox empty. The fact that emails are collecting there now like falling leaves is quite disturbing to me. Because it means I will just have to go in later and deal with them.
Thing #1: I will only check email twice per day. Once in the morning and once at night.
But I don't always remember whether I've done things - especially routine things - so I installed five different to-do apps on my phone and tried entering things on each of them.
Thing #2: I will remember to delete the 4 to-do apps that do not work for me.
Grateful crap: Not sure. Feeling overstimulated and crowded by stuff. Ask me later.
