As a Feng Shui practitioner, I hate clutter. Clutter creates confusion. We have clutter in all areas of our life from people, stuff we donʼt use any more, emails that are piled up in our inbox, to newsletters that donʼt serve us anymore.
1. Emails. Cyber clutter is just as bad as physical clutter. I cleared out all of the emails that I no longer need or that I have already read and answered.
Do you keep all of your emails? If you havenʼt read them by now, chances are youʼre not going to. My recommendation: file them only if you think they are important (hopefully past emails of this newsletter make the list ;0) and let go of the rest. Hit the delete button. If you delete something from someone who needed a response, chances are they will be back in touch.
2. Newsletter Lists. I unsubscribed to several email newsletters that no longer serve me. Either I just wanted to have their free report or they are sending me too many emails. I think once a week is usually plenty and perhaps the odd extra email with time sensitive material or a holiday message or something that is of a time-sentitive nature.
3. Belongings. I go through my closets periodically and get rid of clothing that I not longer wear or doesnʼt fit, as well as anything else that I no longer use or love.
4. Social Media. I had to unfriend/unfollow a few people on Facebook and Twitter because I donʼt want to be subject to the kind of posts and negativity. You are as successful as the people you hang around.
Clearing this confusion will brings clarity as well as good things into you life. Now take some time to create space, but first get rid of the junk.
