Why You Should Declutter Your Digital Life
There’s something about chores that makes us think… “Oh, I’ll do it later.” This is natural, it happens to all of us — we put stuff off and we put stuff off, and then, before we know it, everything has got out of hand. Virtual organizing is no different.
So, let’s stop procrastinating. Here are four things that happen when your digital life is cluttered — four reasons you should declutter your digital life today.
Your Finances Suffer
When file organization starts to go haywire, your finances suffer! You might start missing bill payments, paying for things twice by accident, and losing receipts. You might also lose business with key clients.
Things Get Lost, for Good
It’s not just financial documents that get lost. What about your precious memories? Without a strong digital photo organizer strategy, you might forget which pictures you’ve backed up and which ones you haven’t. Without backup and a proper organization system, if you lose an image, you lose it forever.
Disorganized Habits Spread
Virtual organizing actually has quite widespread effects in the ‘real world’. If you allow your desktop or your digital organizer tools to get cluttered, you might find these habits spreading into other aspects of your life too — and you don’t want this.
You Don’t Feel Good
Messy environments cause stress and have a negative impact on your mental health. You’ll also struggle to get yourself motivated to work if your computer is a mess. People tend to feel icky, stressed, and unproductive. Decluttering and tidying up your digital life can dramatically improve your mood and your outlook, and can give you the boost you need to get ahead in your work.
