A radical digital declutter journey

Before I die of information-exhaustion

Hi there!

Happy December. I recently went on an unplugged honeymoon vacation. I didn’t check my email or Instagram for a whole week. It was wonderful. I’m still alive.

Below are five things I thought were worth sharing this week:

  1. No better way to end 2020 than by radically decluttering my digital space to minimize stress, and reclaim my time and attention. So, I’m declaring this month Digital Declutter December and will be radically downsizing my digital clutter and digital commitments. I'll be sharing my process. Stay tuned.

  2. I recently read Marie Kondo’s book Joy at Work, and the chapter on digital clutter really resonated with me. I want a digital life that sparks joy, not overwhelm.

  3. I also watched Matt D’Avella’s Guide to Digital Minimalism again. He’s one of the few YouTubers I watch and really enjoy, sue me.

  4. A quote I have been pondering: “If you surrendered to the air, you can ride it” by Toni Morrison. I was swimming against the waves in the Atlantic Ocean when the quote popped in my mind: Surrender. Surrender. Surrender.

  5. Running out of storage, overwhelmed by spam or worried about your privacy? This 13-step digital declutter will help you clean up your online act.

    Note: Please be very careful when downloading third-party apps to clear out your digital clutter. For instance, Unroll.me has been found selling its users’ data.

That is all for this week!

Thank you for reading, and please tell a few friends if you’d like.
