I can’t like clutter. I just can’t. However I live with a family that likes clutter it seems. They men in my life won’t allow me to throw away anything. They get anxiety attacks when I start sorting things out. I’ve been known to have stuff taken out of my hands
with force to prevent me from getting rid of it.
Where I am allowed to declutter though is my e-mail. I don’t keep e-mails. I don’t. If it has to do with work, I save that mail in the client’s folder and off it goes. Deleted. If I could, my inbox would be empty when I leave work. Not just the inbox but also sent and deleted items.
When I’m overworked as I am at the moment though, I just run through my mail quickly and attend to only the most important. It stresses me out like you can’t believe! Tonight before leaving work, I got to work through most of the mail and I felt such a sense of relieve! One would think finishing of a set of financial statements or reducing that huge pile of tax forms would do that. No. Cleaning up my inbox does.
Sjoe. I am not well.
