We threw ourselves into cleaning everything, from the house to the body. Spring can be a great time to clean up your digital world – emails, social media accounts, computer,…
We also accumulate a lot of digital garbage on our computers, e-mails, accounts on social networks, in folders, at work and at home. We are overwhelmed with unnecessary data, we download a lot of data from the Internet, which we later forget to delete, we create duplicate folders with photos, we store documents that we really don’t need anymore, we don’t delete “dead” accounts and profiles, “
We’re sure you still haven’t made a line on your computer – you haven’t arranged movies, videos, family photos. Take a couple of hours of free time for digital cleaning or arrange one item at a time in the next few days.
You probably think: well, what’s there to fix, I’m online every day? Believe me, a virtual broom will have a lot of work to do. Start with a friend on Facebook. There are certainly many of them on your list whose accounts are no longer active, with whom you have not had any contact for years. Delete them from your list or put them on the “hide” option on the “newsfeed”, if you are afraid that some of them might be offended.
Also review all those pages you “liked”. There are certainly “dead” or those whose information is no longer interesting to you, who “bore” you. You can also refine your profile, remove individual tags or photos.
And do a purge on Twitter. Discard those whose tweets you no longer like. Sort the list.
Also, set a time for social media. Don’t be addicted. For example, schedule your time by checking Facebook in the morning and Instagram and Twitter in the evening. Spend the rest of your time with yourself and your friends (not the virtual ones).
Our emails are usually cluttered. From spam, various notifications and circular emails. Cleaning is a must, especially if you use multiple emails every day. Arrange important emails and data by folders.
At the end of the working day, let it become your habit, clear emails, delete unnecessary ones, and divide the rest into folders. Get rid of all those “tails” between emails. By this we mean messages from some companies, on whose sites you have stated that you want to receive regular information. If you write a couple of template, almost identical emails during the day, make a “template”, the basis and save it in the mail, so you don’t have to type a lot of things again.
A mess in the computer
First scan your computer, if it has viruses, clean it or take it to a service center if necessary. Use a program like CCleaner (which you can download for free) to clean your computer (from time to time) of unnecessary data. (It allows you to clean up files and data that are created while Windows is running. They will probably never be useful to you, they just pile up on your computer and slow down).
Clean the desktop of unnecessary documents and folders, and clean the bin (delete all “waste” documents). Arrange folders, delete unnecessary ones, make a few basic and new ones with subfolders.
Start with photos, make a division template (say family, business, art,…). Give the folders their names. Do the same with movies, videos and documents.
If your computer is crowded, transfer some of the data to online files on sites like Dropbox or iCloud. These are sites that allow you to open your account with which you get a certain space that you can use to store photos, documents and other data. Only you with your password have access.
Is your digital world a mess? How much time do you spend sorting data?
