Let’s get started!
5 Quick Tips to Declutter Your Inbox:
1. Unsubscribe from Unnecessary Notifications:
This is one of the biggest ways you can quickly decrease the amount of emails you get on a daily basis. Unsubscribe from newsfeeds, social media notifications and any other subscription services that you do not need. For example, if you read a lot of blogs sign up for Bloglovin’, which is a website that allows you to read all of your blogs in one place instead reading the blog post in your inbox or going to the blogger’s site.
2. Color Code, Create Labels and Filters:
I’m big on organizing, especially color coding. Gmail has great color coding and labeling options to keep your emails organized. If you don’t have a Gmail account many email accounts have color coding options, which will make checking your email a breeze. Use the filters and labels to your advantage.
3. Daily Maintenance:
When you check your email immediately delete the emails you do not need.
4. Respond as Soon as You Can:
The longer you wait to respond the more emails pile up. Plus the sooner you respond the less likely you will forget to reply.
5. Set a Time to Check Your Email:
Decide what time is good for you and set a small block of time dedicated to check your email. When you do this you will find yourself spending less time looking through your inbox.
