Managing Email Overload | Families
Let’s talk email. How many emails are in your inbox right now? 100, 500, 1000? Or is your email box so full you need to get a new gmail account just to function.
If you’re inbox is full of emails you’ll never need again (and let’s be honest, that’s most emails), I am going to challenge you to spend 10 minutes every day this week deleting as many emails as possible. Start with the emails you’ve received and work backwards. Another way to do this quickly is to sort your emails by the From field. Then you can quickly bulk delete all of those advertising emails from Sam’s Club or Amazon.
Another way to keep the size of your inbox under the control is to unsubscribe from all those junk emails and e-newsletters you know longer care about. All of these types of emails should have an unsubscribe button usually at the top or bottom of the email. Take a little time as you are deleting those emails and unsubscribe.
