Digital Detox: One tip to Simplify your Inbox

One morning as I was doing my usual routine of checking gmail, I began to get a little annoyed. Most of my time was spent deleting emails I receive every week without glancing at the message. Over the years, I've subscribed to countless newsletters as an entry to a contest promising one lucky winner a vacation, money, or products I don't need. Now I have hundreds (not really) of emails flooding my inbox and no prize. I get it. It was my choice to subscribe even if it was just to fulfill my dream of a free vacation.

I'm working on myself and trying to be more intentional on the decisions I make, and that includes getting my inbox in order. This week I've unsubscribed to several newsletters and it feels like my inbox is getting a little cleanse. We're not in full detox mode yet. Some newsletters refuse to let go and how can I blame them (jk jk jk). Nevertheless, I will continue my pursuit of unsubscribing to newsletters that no longer appeal to me.

I know the tone of this post is a little dramatic and sarcastic, but seriously digital wellness is a thing. In a world where we are constantly connected to our phones and not one another, something has to change. Simplifying your inbox is one step everyone can make... right after you finish reading this post 😊
