Turn off email notifications
Email notifications distract us, are difficult to not click on, and as a result they wreck our concentration. We know that turning them off can be downright scary. Don’t worry, even with them off, you’ll still check your email. Follow our advice and do it, and if it doesn’t work for you, you can always turn them back on later.
SELECT EMAIL APPLICATION
Find the icon for the email app that you use and select it to open the application.
SELECT THE MENU BUTTON
Find the Menu button on your email app.
From the menu, select “Settings” . If you don’t see “Settings,” right away, make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the Menu, it’s often the last menu item.
TURN OFF NOTIFICATIONS
Your options may look different than the ones pictured here depending on what email application you use.
Look for any other other relevant options to uncheck, such as “Notify Once,” or “Display Badge.”
If the application has a "Save," option, don't forget to save.
