During the holidays, this is a particular problem.
According to our job stress research, the sheer volume of work to be done is the single largest stressor for a vast majority of people. Eliminating things which steal time and energy from what is important is a central point in The Trouble With Busy.
Think about it.
Deleting what you don’t need several times per day takes time and energy you could use better elsewhere. Take a couple extra moments to scroll down and click the link to unsubscribe. Better yet, use a tool such as unroll.me to do it all at once. Today, using unroll.me I found 132 subscriptions. There are far fewer now. We all “sign up” for activities and relationships that may work in the beginning, but over time we outgrow them or our needs change. Any time we buy something online, the merchant has permission to email us.
It’s okay –- unsubscribe.
Think about it this way.
Unsubscribing is freeing. You don’t have to feel guilty about it. As a person who sends out a regular email newsletter, I only want subscribers who find value in what I provide. If you don’t have time to read it, if it doesn’t fit your needs, if it is just cluttering up your inbox, please unsubscribe. I won’t take it personally, really!
Unsubscribe for productivity, low stress, and great success this holiday season.
