Digital Decluttering Challenge – Day 2

Everyday we are flooded with emails to the point we are drowning! 
Take 5-min today to set up at least (1) filter on your emails.

My favorite change was to my Gmail mobile app. I do most of my digital decluttering while on the train, sometimes while standing and being able to complete actions one-handed such as, ‘swipe to delete’ is a huge time saver.
For some reason it was originally set up to have both the right and left swipe actions move your email to the “Archive.” That’s not something I have ever used so a few completely random emails are sitting in an Archive Folder that I have never opened.

Another way to do this, again in Gmail, is to enable any of the 5 Tabs available.For the longest time I left them all to enter my life in my Primary Tab. It became my To-Do list vs me choosing what was the priority. Like fighting the fires, and greasing the squeaky wheels, I was too reactionary with my life instead of using my time more wisely and being proactive.
Selecting to use the tabs labeled as; Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates, and Forums, helps you decide the priority your various emails will take in your life.

Published by Studio Deanna Welcome! I’m Deanna, a metals & fiber artist creating beautiful artwork for unusual spaces. My sculptures and wall art installations are very tactile, textiles often taking on organic forms inspired by our natural planet. Utilizing my custom-made steel tools, my favorite pieces to create are large-gauge wire crochet sculptures. The meticulously handcrafted designs will enrich your office, home, and outdoor living spaces. Inspired by my international experiences have provided the opportunity to swim in the gorgeous tropical waters around Hawai’i, hiking the rainforests in Far North Queensland, and witness breathtaking beauty in Africa. Currently I am dividing my time between Tokyo Bay Area and Hawai’i and am open for commission art works.
