How it became that way really doesn’t matter. What matters is that you don’t have to let that junk mail bog you down anymore. On a good day you go straight to the delete button, and on other days you probably find yourself scanning through them just to see what is being offered.
It is time to unsubscribe! All that mail is clutter. It distracts from the important emails you need to get to, and it takes up time that could be spent doing something you enjoy more (like reading your favorite blogs). Sorry I couldn’t help myself there! J
The junk mail almost becomes this noise you get used to, but it is adding clutter to your life blocking you from the freedom of a clear inbox, and distracting you from focusing. Junk mail is not the only distraction on the computer or on the internet, but it is certainly one of them. One that can be removed from your life without too much time and effort.
For a long time I did not hit that unsubscribe button found in the bottom of the email, somewhere... in tiny little letters, because I was afraid I would miss out. They were after all mostly from my favorite stores, whose products I like. I’ve since realized it is ok not to see every deal and every sale. In fact I would argue it is better for your happiness not to. When we focus on what we already have and not on all of the things we don’t/want/should it takes away from our happiness. You may not even be realizing it.
Is your junk mail making you feel like you don’t have enough? That you don’t travel enough? Or that you have way too many emails to take care of. Give yourself the freedom to miss out on all that you don’t have, and let yourself be happy with what you already do have.
One thing I have realized is that when there is something we are in need of, we already know it. The junk mail isn’t actually informing us of that. When there is a purchase that needs to be made, most of the time we search out where to get it. You can always go online or visit your favorite stores to find out the sales when that time comes. In the meantime you are not being bombarded with the don’t haves, your inbox is less cluttered and so is your mind.
Happy Unsubscribing J
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
Do you feel attached to some of your junk mail?
