I’ve never scheduled an email before, but I love that idea since you would be able to give yourself more context and information all in one place for that later date. I typically use my Google calendar app to add tasks or events to remind future me of something I need to do, such as schedule my kids’ yearly well check visits, flu shots, etc.

Knowing me, I would be nervous that my scheduled email might not be set up correctly and not come through, so I might integrate the two by putting a reminder in my calendar to be on the lookout for the email, just for my own peace of mind. Thank you for sharing your ideas!

Whatever works for you is great! I'm terrible about using calendar reminders for that sort of thing because they will pass by and I will forget about them, but to me an email creates urgency. I love that idea of fusing the two together!

I feel so validated knowing I'm not the only one who sends emails to myself..it kind of makes me feel like a crazy person! I've never scheduled them, however, and I think this is genius. Thanks for the tip!

Haha! I know what you mean, but how else are we supposed to remember everything?! I hope scheduling works for you!
