• 45% – the proportion of 18 – 34-year-olds who check their inbox before getting out of bed
• 1 out of 5 – the proportion of children who have never received a handwritten letter
• If you’re distracted by an unread email sitting in your inbox while you’re concentrating on a task, it can reduce your effective IQ by 10 points
