It’s day 28 of the 31 Days of Mindfulness Challenge and today’s task is to clear the digital clutter and clean out your email inbox.
Day 28: Clean Out That Inbox
“Clutter is one of the greatest enemies of efficiency and stealers of time.”
— Don Aslett
I firmly believe there are two types of people in this world. Those that constantly want an inbox of zero (me) and those that are okay with having 3,458 emails waiting for them to read (Brett). He swears it doesn’t bother him, but I get anxious every time I see the notification number on his phone’s home screen.
I think an argument could be made that decluttering your digital inbox could have some of the same positive effects as decluttering your home. Not only will it decrease the notifications (and the itch to check what that new email is) but it will also cut the overwhelm if you’re the type who likes a clean inbox at all times. In addition, think of all the gained mental space and time you’ll save when you don’t have a continuous stream of emails coming in that you aren’t consuming.
The point of all this is to take away the overwhelm… but if the thought of removing yourself from those unwanted emails sounds just as bad as being subscribed to them, don’t worry. There’s a few free tools that will help you out:
With a few quick clicks, these tools will automatically unsubscribe you from all the unwanted junk. Pretty nifty, huh?!
Happy digital decluttering!
