How to use a layer mask on multiple layers

I have an image, to which I have applied several adjustment layers, but there is an area of the image I want to exclude from these layers.
I know how to edit the layer mask for each adjustment layer, but is there an easy way to apply the same mask to all the adjustment layers?

Using Photoshop CC 2015

Yeah.....at least two ways.

Either:
1. Create a smart object and apply a layer mask to that.
2. Put all the adjustment layers in a folder and apply a layer mask to that.

Both will do the job...which one you use is down to personal preference.

Regards.

Perfect! I have grouped the layers and added a new layer mask and it's working as intended - thanks! :)

I'm an idiot sometimes.
