As we embark on a new year, the promise of fresh beginnings prompts reflection on resolutions and aspirations for 2024. While we diligently outline workout plans, self-improvement goals, and strategies for home cleaning and organizing, it's essential not to overlook our digital domains. Just as we tidy up our physical spaces, a mindful digital declutter can significantly alleviate stress and enhance productivity in our day-to-day lives.

Here are some suggestions to begin your digital declutter:


Organize your emails

  • Clean out junk folders

  • Delete unread emails (spam)

  • Create folders

  • Unsubscribe from newsletters and businesses you no longer are interested in


go through your social media contacts

  • Delete or deactivate any accounts you don’t use

  • Unfollow or mute accounts that don’t add value to your life

  • Go through your inbox and delete old messages and spam

  • Adjust your privacy settings to best currently suit you


Use a password manager

  • A password manager is a tool that generates and remembers secure, random passwords for you.

    • Last Pass or Bitwarden (but there are many others)


Delete unwanted apps and update old accounts

  • Go through your devices and delete apps you no longer use. These can take up a ton of space on your device

  • Do you have an old email account with a questionable name? Perhaps delete these old accounts and create new handles that reflect you now


Reflect on your digital habits

  • Perhaps set your own guidelines for your digital usage and reflect on the impact that your daily digital time plays in your life.

  • What changes can you make to lead a healthier and more balanced 2024?

By maintaining a continuous effort to declutter your digital life, you can avoid the need to spend extensive hours next year rectifying this year's accumulated mess. This proactive approach ensures a safer and more robust defense against potential cyber-attacks.
