We feel uncomfortable turning off work notifications

Yep, however one step forward is customizing Slack notifications hours. That's a great feature. In my case, I have it configured to only send notifications between my chosen working hours. It's a relief.

Recognize your micro-work moments first

This as well. We first should accept and identify we're overworking. After that, we can find solutions to get a better balance.

Great post.

EDIT: I've also set my stop working times to be a bit earlier than usual. For example, I finish my morning session half hour earlier. This way I get a bit more of rest and also force myself to be more productive in the previous working hours.
