A Digital Declutter Day

I started off my day by unsubscribing from 6 out of 8 daily emails and 5 out of 6 apps that have a monthly or annual fee. This is just a continuation of actions I’ve taken recently to get my mental state to a better place.

A month ago I stopped watching, listening to and reading national and global news. Polarization has country after country mired in hate. Tribalism has become the norm.

A few days ago I deleted 4 of 5 websites I was maintaining.

With all that is going on around the world politically, economically and environmentally; I was going out of my mind, not sleeping and becoming a recluse in order to stay away from people and all the turmoil.

Quite simply, I need a mental cleansing and performing a digital declutter was an important step in working towards a more balanced state of mind.
