A radical digital declutter journey

Before I die of information-exhaustion

Hi there,

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

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

  1. No better way to end the year 2020 than by radically decluttering my digital space to minimize stress and reclaim my time and attention. I am declaring this month Digital Declutter December and will be radically downsizing my digital footprint.

  2. I read Marie Kondo’s book Joy at Work: Organizing Your Professional Life, and the chapter on digital clutter really resonated with me. Cheers to a digital life that sparks joy, not overwhelm.

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

  4. A quote I want to share with you this week:

    If you surrendered to the air, you can ride it.

    — 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 can help you clean up your digital space.

    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 share with anyone you think may benefit.
