Prevent Flow from starting on event

If the trigger is "Run when item is created or modified" (in a Flow for a Sharepoint list), the Flow will run on each change.

 

That means that if a user changes Field A, saves, then one second later also changes Field B and saves, the Flow will run twice. A Flow that sends an email will then send two emails.

 

How can I configure a Flow not to behave like this, but rather to wait for the "last" change from the user before running and/or sending the email? (Considering that I do not know if the user will make one och seven changes)
