Luxy Hair’s 30 Day Self Care Challenge, Day 5: Clean out your inbox.
Read more about this journey by checking out my previous acts of self-love.
This was trying for me. At first, I was relieved. Thank heck, I can get some of that garbage out of my email so I can actually find the things I’ve starred as important. Then, I realized that email isn’t my only inbox. I realized that, if I were to truly do this challenge to the fullest extent, I’d have to do something I’ve been avoiding for over a year now.
My Tumblr inbox.
I have a little over 3,000 subs over there. In my inbox, I had 260 unread messages. The only problem is that none of them are spam. I delete the ones I don’t have to respond to. Now I am faced with a giant hoard of messages that I’ve been saving “to respond to later.”
I am going to time myself. I am not going to switch tabs, I’m not going to fall down a YouTube hole. I am going to answer all *gulp* 260 messages from “fans.” Here goes nothing.
Alright. After 55 minutes, I managed to answer 151 messages. If you ask me, that’s pretty damn good. Especially since I’ve been avoiding this for a year.
Even though I am on a roll and it felt good, I still need to shower and do other things (hi, yes, it’s 9:30 at night and I haven’t eaten anything since noon???) so I can’t spare another hour answering messages.
I do have to say that I enjoyed this. This is the second time that I found these “challenges” actually challenging. Like day one when I was decluttering my room, I found that the hard work was really rewarding. Just like I no longer have a huge pile of clutter by my bed, I also no longer have a huge pile of clutter in my inboxes. Never before have they been so empty and my conscience so clear!
Have a lovely day, y’all. As always, remember to drink water 🙂
