Unread? Wow, that may be worse than unprocessed. At least if someone reads the email and leaves it in the inbox, they've put some amount of attention on deciding if it's meaningful.Whenever someone shows me their phone, and I see their email icon with something like 5,736 unread emails, I experience a momentary panic attack about all the unprocessed inputs.
it would be a great idea for all of us to turn off all of our inputs, and only add them back when they are truly needed.I can still remember everything about the hospital room when I finally turned of every notification on my phone - no text, phone, email, Facebook - nothing. I was prepping for a stem cell transplant and truly nothing else in my life was more important at that moment. And then recovering took every bit of concentration I had for a long while.
When I finally decided to turn some notifications back on, I took that decision very seriously. And I absolutely despise the badge bit of notifications and only have that on for phone and text, neither of which are overwhelming in my world.
Even now that I'm back to my life full time and priority clarity isn't as starkly obvious, I stay aware of how much pings use my available energy for a day and continue to remember what I've learned.
Dave, I'm 6 years out and in the clear. VERY thankful to be officially in remission.it would be a great idea for all of us to turn off all of our inputs, and only add them back when they are truly needed.
Having said that, Moseylissa, I hope your treatments were as successful as your notification purge was
