Forget the Juice diet – do an Inbox Detox

Forget the Juice diet - do an Inbox Detox

As the new year starts most of our thoughts turn to diets and staying healthy.

The rise of drastic” juice-based” diets tell us that we need results fast – and the same is true of our overflowing and bloated email inboxes.

So, if the thought of starting the year with the equivalent of an email “spare tyre” is enough to drive you crackers, take heed of the Emailogic guide to your inbox detox.

1.       Delete all the spam and junk from your current inbox

2.       Delete the old pre Christmas round robin emails

3.       Create a new email folder

4.       Call it “2014 inbox”

5.       Copy all your current un-read emails into this folder

6.       Start applying the following common sense rules to all new emails that you receive in January:

(i) Set up a Rule to mark your important emails red or green(for example those from the boss)
(ii) Spend some time unsubscribing from emails you no longer wish to receive such as newsletters or special offers
(iii) Set up a rule to move Group emails into a folder
(iv) Set up a rule to move emails that you are “CC’d” in to a specific folder – call it “CC mail”

If you follow all the above rules your inbox will feel lighter – which is the perfect way to start your new year routine.
