Improve productivity by ignoring emails

Do you find your most productive at the very start of the day following all those lovely hours of sleep? But do you also find you spend the first hour or 2 at work reading through emails only to then discover its coming up to lunch and you haven't achieved much actual work?

This is a problem many of us face and often it can lead to having a feeling of being behind for the rest of the day, which ultimately lowers our performance for the rest of the day.

The solution is simple, Don't open your email! Ok obviously at some point you will have to, but rather than first thing, try getting an hour of worm done first. This way you've got something done that you can feel good about before trawling through all those emails followed by a break for lunch.
