I’m free! I have no stoopid emails lockin’ me up inside!

Hola deeevine hottie cakes!!

I’ve written about this before, but it warrants repeating.

Your life needs you away from your email inbox.

Confession: I used to have an out-of-control inbox. Like: EPIC.

And then one day I having a panic on the phone to a dear friend about my 300+ emails that I hadn’t answered yet that had been sitting there for months that I was feeling guilty and stressed over. She got all interventionist on me, and made me go to my computer and delete all of them. I only got to keep ones that were HIGHLY HIGHLY important {ummm, like three}. The rest got deleted.

So, I think step one is having a clear out NOW, so you don’t have residual guilt about it. Delete, delete, delete unless it is HIGHLY HIGHLY important. Ever since, I’ve been working on ways to deal with the inbox everyday so I don’t get overwhelm, I still feel connected and it feels flowing.

Here’s my top four tips:

1. Unsubscribe from newsletters and mailing lists that you don’t really like, or that you keep filing away for reading and never end up getting to because it feels like a chore. Only keep things that you will read the day you get it.

2. Unsubscribe from getting email notifications every time someone responds to your forum messages and Facebook stuff. Then, when you do your rounds in the morning, just use the Search button to see what activity has happened around your name, and respond if you feel like it, don’t if you don’t.

3. When you read an email, respond to it that day, or make it an actionable item on your To Do List, and file it away. That way, when it comes to doing it, you can just search if you need the info from the email again. In terms of To Do List tools online, I recommend using either Gmail’s Task List if you are using Gmail already, or www.todoist.com. I use Todoist. Love it!

4. I can’t stress this one enough: respond to emails when you open them or at the very most, that same day. Deal with them then and there. If you are going to respond, respond. If you aren’t, file it. And just be done with it. My motto is: Less Stress. More Good Times. Less feeling like you HAVE to respond. Follow your gut, and let it go.

Now… go get started. Go delete. Let go. Release. Your emails are sick of living in your inbox. They want to be set free! They want you to be free too!

Report back here if you need to. Group hugs and sloppy puppy kisses to anyone who gets to zero.

Then go do something else. Make something. Create something. Love something. Remember who you are under the sky.

It will do your heart and soul good.

Trust me!

I believe in you!
