How many e-mails do you receive in your inbox daily? Probably, many. E-mails can be very annoying if you are receiving them in a more significant amount.  

During the flight, you can tackle your e-mail inbox. Flight time is best for reading your necessary e-mails. The other thing that you can do is to write and send e-mails to your colleagues, employees, or business partner. 

You can’t send e-mails to anyone on the flight without any internet connection, but you can create e-mails and save them as a draft. Once you connect your laptop or mobile to the Wi-Fi, you can send those e-mails which are kept as a draft. 

Deleting unnecessary e-mails from your inbox is also a great idea. 

  1. Meditation:
