7 things that you must spring clean right now!
Spring is here! Temperatures are getting warmer. The birds are singing and the flowers are blooming! It’s time to spring clean your digital space. You know, all of the checklists, cheatsheets, podcasts, etc. that you’ve signed up for. You know that you are holding onto stuff that you don’t need. Here are 7 things that you MUST spring clean right now!
Email – Yes, I have signed up for all of those freebies. Did you really use all of those checklists, productivity hacks, cheat sheets, etc.? If not, unsubscribe from these newsletters. Spring cleaning your inbox, increases your focus on productivity.
Inbox – Yes, inbox. People wrongly equate email to inbox; but, they are vastly different. Your inbox has folders. You may have forgotten what you’ve saved in these folders. Go through them and delete anything that’s irrelevant to your life right now. This frees up space.
Social Media – Though the ‘experts’ say that you must be everywhere, are you using all of these websites? For me, my primary social media channels are LinkedIn, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. There are many others but whittle down to the ones I use keep me focused.
Phone – How many apps and numbers that you haven’t called in a long time? Deleting them saves you memory, increases battery space and money (yes, some apps cost money.). I know that meditating was one of your New Year’s Resolutions so you paid to download that cool meditation app which you never used. Ditch your subscription.
Cloud and Data Storage – Remember all of those free checklists and cheatsheets that you signed up via email? Well, you stored all of them online. Delete all of them since you aren’t using any of them. Deleting these files save you space, time and money.
Browser – People overlook their browser until it starts spooling and moving slow. Clearing your cache and deleting unused bookmarks increase your computer’s speed. Dump any sites that you haven’t visited in over 90 days.
Computer – Be honest. We have so much junk stored on our computers. But are you using all of those desktop and task bar icons?
