    1. Many self improvement people use email checking as a litmus test of how in-control of your life you are. And the reason is that people whose lives tend to be a bit out of control check their emails often, which shows they are staying busy versus being productive. In the end there is no method that is right or wrong, but effective people typically do not check their email countless times throughout the day. But remember this is not the only modifier.

      1. There was a time in my life when I thought staying busy was the same thing as being productive and nothing could be further from the truth.

      1. Well, if not having a job is by design I say congrats. If it isn’t and you are looking I hope you find something soon. 🙂

    1. I don’t really have a suggestion. I usually am more concerned with helping people maintain control over life instead of life maintaining them. So if someone had out-of-control tendencies, one of the areas we would start taking control over would be checking-in online (i.e. FB, Twitter, email, etc.)

  1. My computer is on all day and I open the email first thing and don’t close it until I go to bed. I get all the notifications and usually my curiosity has me checking it. Or, if I have generated an email from my surfing (subscriptions, password updates, etc.), I will check it right away. So, lets just say I am an email addict and leave it at that!😉

  2. Hmm… Maybe 5 or 6 and that’s not including my work emails. Oh my goodness, that’s all throughout the day as a lot of my communication with patients, insurance carriers, and various facilities come through that one channel.

  3. It’s the nature of my day job that I am glued to my work email all day. I could be glib and say that I only check it once, for 24 hours, but honestly, I react every time I hear an email come in for work. My ability to react quickly could mean the difference between a good and bad client relationship. As for personal email, I check it about 3-5 times per day.

    Overall, nothing bothers me more than seeing a bunch of unread email in my inbox. Someone took the time to reach out to me and I feel obligated to respond if needed.

  4. Work email is on all day Monday-Friday…but personal email probably averages 5-10 times a day! oh my that is a lot. I have an issue with the little red notification on my phone..must clear it!

      1. It’s easier during the day when I’m working at my job to read both personal and business, but my weekends are for my family and friends and I try to be engaged.
