Taking breaks from consuming unnecessary information can be restorative, especially in the morning when we are most clear-minded and creative.

  1. Turn off automatic alerts or notifications. 

  2. Schedule time for essential information.

After composing an email, social media post, or message, it's essential to pause and ask: 

  • How will this communication be perceived? 

  • Does it contain the necessary information I need to communicate? 

  • Is it necessary to send at all?

These steps will help you to save a lot of time and energy.

Therefore, a key takeaway is that taking a moment for mindfulness before engaging with information can save time and energy, and can also have a positive impact on productivity and effectiveness. Also it will boost mental energy to help you focus on what really matters.
