Inbox DETOX: Clean for 2 Months!

Drugs?  No!  Booze?  No!  I’m talking about SPAM!  January 1, 2013 I unsubscribed from every single daily email subscription and it has changed my life!

What is life like without the daily emails, you wonder?  Here are the benefits after 2 months, SPAM-free:

  1. CLEAN!  After meditation and a workout, I look at my email each morning and instead of 25+ emails, there are only 5-8 critical emails.  It’s overwhelming to see a big number of emails to attack first thing on a Monday.  Now I have a manageable number of emails to knock out, instead of deleting all the crap!
  2. LESS DISTRACTIONS!  Less pop-up emails, more productivity.  Our brains switch gears too much when daily subscription emails pop up —work to shopping, back to work, to restaraunt browing, making it tough to focus on work after checking out the latest shoe sale on  No more!
  3. MORE $$$!  I’ts INSANE to realize how much we don’t actually need.  These websites lure you in because they are time-sensitive and if you don’t buy ASAP, it’s like you are missing out.  Wrong!  You have enough.  No emails = no extra spending on stuff you don’t need.
  4. NO BOXES = no husband yelling at you, “Another box from  Seriously??”  Sucka!  That’s right.  No more boxes unless it’s a super important purchase.

I feel like I lost 5 lbs in my inbox.  I’m clean and it feels so good!  I HIGHLY recommend an inbox detox ASAP.

TELL ME:  Have you unsubscribed and noticed a big difference?  Are you distracted by emails popping up throughout the day unrelated to work?  Ready to Inbox Detox??  Tell me what you think!
