Nowadays, people are very reluctant to socialize they try to interact more in the digital world through digital technology.

Even if we look into our professional lives, they are also heavily dependent on digital technologies, as we are always working on laptop, iPad and computers.

As we are living in the digital world, we should also know how to declutter it. As due to the COVID we have got chances to work from home and being comfortable and doing the work but our professional and personal lives mixed up so badly. It has become difficult to differentiate which email notifications are important. However, in the following, there are few ways, or we can say tips and techniques to declutter our digital world so that we could live our lives bit relaxed.

Digital World

Construct a separation:

we first need to differentiate between the personal and professional life, we need to draw a line for that so that the things won’t get mixed up and confusing. For that, it is necessary to create a separation. It feels so demotivated and bad that when you are switching between replying to your child teachers email and on the other hand, you are quickly trying to communicate on the video conference so here it feels like it is a clash between both. And you are also unable to work professionally and efficiently. So to avoid this hassle, you need to separate a few things. Firstly, you need to fix up the digital timetable, and according to it set a time that when you are going to work and respond to the work-related emails or when you are going to attend the videoconferencing. After you set up the time for the professional field, then you must proceed to set the timetable that when you are going to check the personal messages, or like family or children related emails, calls and whatsoever. 

Fix the expectation:

when you are working professionally in any field, it is very necessary to take out time for yourself to. You don’t need to be available for the customers, your boss, or for a colleague’s every time. Like you can mention to them that after your working hours have been completed you are in charge of your life and you have a personal life too, so you won’t be accessible to them 24/7 whenever they need you. Or the other option is that to respond their emails or the office calls you must set up a time that during these hours other than the office hours you can be available for them, so that if they need to ask you or address any issue so they can ask and after that strictly bound them that no matter what you are not for them because it’s essential to differentiate between work and personal life.

Limiting yourself for your mental peace:

nowadays we have seen that out there many people are facing the issues of work stress, after getting the job, their personal life is nowhere, and because of the stress and workload even at home they are working, and they get into mental issues, they are far away from the mental peace. So to maintain the mental peace, you just need to focus on yourself and limit yourself. Such as if someone or your colleague is asking you for help, it is good to help them, but if that lending of help is falling into the time of working hours then you must help out, but for instance, if your colleague is asking for the help after the working hour then you must realize that the if you are lending help for once that means it will become a routine, which can severely disturb your time in the future. And most importantly straighten up your facts and figure and first get to know that how important is the work to which you are lending your help because many time the task is not difficult, but the colleagues take advantage of your leniency and ask you to help them in their work. So avoid unnecessary help, especially which is like invading your time. 

Prioritize yourself:

you need to understand that you come first, before lending others help understand one thing carefully and clearly that how much help you need for your self. Mostly we are available for others in the professional field, and then we are left with the work, and in worst cases, we come in the bad books of our bosses. So prioritize yourself first complete your own work, first help yourself, meet your work deadlines first and then lend your helping hand to others it is much better in your interest. 

Control and manage your inbox:

try to manage your inbox and try to keep it clean from all the unnecessary emails, unsubscribe yourself from irrelevant stuff and monitor your email that whatever emails you are receiving are essential. Set the system of filtering out the emails, by the sender, recipient or subject line. It will reduce your stress. Also when it comes to decluttering try to keep your desktop or laptop screens clear and sorted it out so whenever you open it, you don’t feel like stressed or confused. Assorting out the laptop screen will give you a clear way to start your work.

This is a complete age of digital and we have to manage our schedules and time as per the digital requirement. Even the prevailed situation of COVID has increased the use of digital technologies a lot. Students are getting an online education; exams are conducting through different online platforms. Students have got many online essay help sources to finish their academic tasks.  Even offices are managed properly via online CRM and ERPs .
