So I’ve recently realized just how many e-mails I receive daily that I don’t want to receive at all. This consists of websites I don’t remember subscribe to or clothing websites I don’t even shop at. This made me think of my new year’s resolution to simplify and I figured why not start with something as simple as e-mail?
The site unroll.me has been super helpful with this. I realized I was subscribed to 53 e-mails and with a simple click I was able to quickly get rid of 35! This was so simple and I definitely feel as though I’ve simplified my life even a tiny bit.
That was simple but some other simple ways I’ve been simplifying my digital life are:
- Unsubscribing to YouTubers I no longer have an interest in or any YouTuber who’s been incredibly inactive. I went from 700 subscriptions to 100!
- Un-liking old Facebook pages on Facebook. Totally regret my middle school phase where I liked over 2,000 “relatable” pages on Facebook. Gross.
- Updating or changing bios or display pictures for sites like Tumblr, Facebook or even Gmail.
Cleaning up digital things is quite refreshing and some of them aren’t even that hard! Try it!
