Do you ever feel like your inbox is taking over your life? You’re not alone. In fact, the average person spends 2.5 hours managing their email every day. That’s a huge time suck!
But what if I told you there was a way to take back control of your inbox and free up some of that precious time?
The secret is to set up a burner e-mail account.
A burner email account is an email address that you use for temporary purposes or for subscribing to newsletters, unsubscribing from unwanted emails, and so on.
This way, your primary inbox stays clean and uncluttered. You can set up a burner email account for free with Gmail, Outlook, or any other email provider.
Once you have your burner account set up, the next step is to start moving those unwanted emails over.
To do this, simply unsubscribe from any newsletters or other emails that you no longer want to receive.
Then, set up a filter, or change the email address, so that all future emails from that sender are automatically forwarded to your burner account.
This way, you can check them all at once instead of having them clog up your primary inbox.
Finally, make a commitment to yourself to check your burner account once a day—or even once a week—and delete any unwanted emails.
By taking control of your inbox, you can save yourself precious time—time that you can use to grow your business or just relax and enjoy life!
A client recently did this and saved over an hour a day by this one little change.
In addition, by decluttering your inbox, you’ll be less likely to miss important emails since they won’t be buried under a pile of junk mail.
So go ahead and give it a try—you might just be surprised at how much better you feel when you’re in control of your inbox!
