Not too long ago I wrote about two ways to start getting a handle on your email inbox. About two days after that, something in my social media feed about managing email caught my attention – a service called Unroll.me. It claimed to make it even easier to deal with your email by capturing all the newsletters your email address is subscribed to, then allowing you to instantly unsubscribe from the ones you didn’t want anymore, and offering the option of condensing any of the remaining subscriptions into a daily digest. It sounded just about too good to be true, so I decided to check it out. I was quite surprised to find that I was subscribed to well over 100 newsletters and marketing emails! Since I’m quite diligent about unsubscribing from newsletters and other email that tends to appear as junk to me, I was shocked that I was still subscribed to so many!

(i.e., better time management) What if I told you that meditation has revealed physical clutter in my life and made it clear to me that it was time to let it go? (i.e., reduced physical clutter) I know, it might sound a little strange, but this has been the reality for me and many others I know who meditate regularly. In my experience as a clutter coach and holistic organizer I have come to see intricate connections between emotional clutter and how it manifests as physical clutter in the homes of my clients. Basically it boils down to this: these two types of clutter affect each other, and if you try to just clear the physical clutter without addressing the emotional clutter, it’s likely you’ll end up stuck or that the physical clutter will just come back. Meditation and other spiritual practices are some of … Continue reading
