What is it like to check email once a week (at most)?

On a recent rail journey around Australia (stories here and here), I checked my email once in two weeks. For some reason, the removal from my daily life of one significant source of consistent interruption meant that I could relax in a way I have not done for a long time. Of course, on return home, I began to check my email many times a day – until today. As part of my semi-retirement, I will check my email again only on Thursday next week, and then at most weekly after that. However, I did find that when you get in the habit, another day or two extra makes little difference.

  1. I actually find it therapeutic to deal with emails on a daily basis, but I fully understand your desire to relegate its importance, and to free yourself from the routines attached.
    Best wishes, Pete.
