Decluttering Your Digital Media For Your Mental Health

Decluttering Your Digital Media

I’ve been really into trying to keep my room and house more organized lately. Clutter never used to bother me but I’ve been finding that my mental health is better and I feel good when things are picked up and put away. I don’t think I’ll ever be a neat freak by any stretch of the imagination but I’ve been making more of an effort to have better habits around keeping my space clean. I have been on such a declutter kick lately that I  decided to clean out my digital life too.

Social Media

I only follow people that spread positive, interesting or educational content. I don’t have room on my newsfeed or in my life for whining, pretentious status updates or complaining. I either unfriend or unfollow everyone that isn’t high vibe. Go through all of your media and be really brutal about who you allow on your newsfeed. Trust me, it will feel really good. You don’t need other peoples negative crap holding you back. You have intense healing to do and a vibrant life to live. You don’t have time for crap on social media weighing you down so be really heartless and get rid of everyone who is not helping you on your journey.


I am so guilty of leaving everything on my desktop and letting my laptop just be a general clusterfuck. Honestly, one of the best things I have done for myself is starting to store everything in google docs. This way I can access all of my business files, documents and folders from any computer. When I moved into the cloud I spent time creating and organizing all of my documents into folders and now I can actually find the things I need quickly and easily (what a wild idea). It makes life less frustrating and easy when you have everything you need at your fingertips and you don’t have to dig around trying to find it. Spend some time organizing your digital files so they’re easier to find and you don’t have to do that frustrating hunt for the document you created last month.


I accumulate apps on my phone so fast it will make your head spin. When I’m spring cleaning my digital life I go through my phone and delete all of the extra apps I have on there that I’m not using. It feels great to get rid of all the un-needed clutter on my phone. After I clear out all the useless apps I clean out old pictures, videos and downloaded files. Something about cleaning out my phone just helps me feel more aligned and ready to kick ass. Get rid of anything that doesn’t serve you or is weighing you down.


My email is just always out of control. I never take the time to unsubscribe from stuff I don’t read so I accumulate an insane amount of email very quickly. I use Unroll.Me once every few months to quickly and easily remove myself from email lists I don’t want to be on. It only takes a few minutes and it’s amazing how much email it cuts down on. This alone makes my email feel so much less overwhelming. It’s a lot easier to get through my email without all the junk mail cluttering up my email.
