Being digitally clean is showing considerable results in increasing an individual’s productivity every day.

What are the important Digital Cleaning Tips?

Here are 5 important Digital Cleaning Tips for boosting your productivity:

1. Turn Off Notifications:

A recent survey suggests that checking your phone while working or resuming work after checking all your phone-notifications slows your brain for the next 15-20 minutes. Only after that, your brain will get into focus on the work. Imagine what happens when you keep checking notifications every half-hour or one hour? You lose approx. 3 Hours of your productive time. Turn off notifications during working hours. Save time.

2. Clean Inbox:

Can you believe how every single email (old) in your inbox is consuming energy 24/7? It’s true. To stay in your email cloud, it takes energy. It’s surveyed that if individuals in a small locality delete 50-60 emails, the energy-saved becomes substantial. Clean your inbox from time to time. Have fewer important emails.

3. Start Unsubscribing:

Unsubscribe from newsletters, promotions, emails, coupons, etc. It’s a drag to your productivity.

4. Clean Screen:

Keep your laptop/smartphone screen clean from social-media app icons, gaming-apps, shortcuts, and links. If you have anything to store, put them in their corresponding folder. Don’t use shortcut links for them on your screen. By simplifying your screen, you are helping yourself with no-distractions and look for what is important.

5. Delete Unnecessary:

If you have plenty of downloads, unused apps, and media on your phone, delete them immediately. They drain your space. And, with too many downloads, it is difficult to glance at a certain file when needed quickly.


Digital cleaning is an important aspect of boosting your productivity in recent times. So, be responsible while handling your digital space. Restrict yourself from notifications while working. Adopt digital minimalism.
