Mental Cleanse Challenge: Week 4

Posted in Health, Lifestyle
on February 20, 2017

I have been looking forward to this week in particular. Although I have done an initial declutter and organization of my digital life a few months ago, I know that it’s a good time to sort through everything again.

If you’re stopping by here for the first time, make sure you go back and check out the other posts from this month’s challenge.

If you want to review all the challenges from the 30-Day Mental Cleanse Challenge, check out the list below!

Feb. 13: Clean out your inbox and sort your emails into folders. Delete all spam.

Done! This was so therapeutic for me especially going through my personal email, junk email and work email! Needless to say it was a busy and productive evening!

Feb. 14: No social media before 11 a.m. Take the time to be productive!

Yikes. I didn’t realize how difficult this was going to be, but I was able to plan ahead and get everything scheduled on social media for my blog items and for work as well so that I could focus on other projects!

Feb. 15: Unfollow people on social media who don’t inspire you.

This was the best day ever.  I didn’t realize how many people I was following that truly don’t inspire me or interest me. I cleared out a lot of unwanted posts from Facebook friends, Twitter followers and more!

Feb. 16: Organize your desktop accordingly into folders. Delete unnecessary items.

I didn’t realize how much I was slacking off with my desktop folders for blogging recently. After a half hour, everything was organized properly in their folders. My desktop couldn’t be happier!

Feb. 17: Go through your phone and organize your apps into folders. Delete apps you don’t use, old notes, contacts, etc.

The amount of notes I had on my phone was insane. I take work notes when I’m walking throughout the day so I don’t forget things. But the amount of unnecessary notes I had was insane. It only took 20 minutes to complete!

Feb. 18: Have a phone-free night with family or loved ones!

Josh and I spent the evening together after he got out of work, so it was easy to keep our phones away while we had a date night. We went downtown for dinner, drinks and went to a hockey game!

Feb. 19: Unsubscribe from email marketing you’re not interested in keeping up with.

I didn’t have a lot of emails to unsubscribe from, but I still went through and made sure any old emails from bloggers I don’t read, or stores I don’t shop at were deleted and unsubscribed from this day! My inbox is free of clutter.

The fourth week of challenges: Positivity 

  • Feb. 20: No complaint day
  • Feb. 21: Write down 3 great things that happened today

  • This challenge is awesome! I wish I would’ve seen it sooner because I would have loved to participate from the get go.

    • It’s okay if you start it on your own time, Jenny! I know I’ll be doing the challenge again sometime in summer or fall 🙂

  • You had a pretty fantastic week! I especially loved how you spent your phone-free evening! I loved the digital cleanse, but I am beyond excited about focusing on being positive this week!

  • I love the idea of this!!! No social media till 11….that would be a tough one for me! I may have to try this out (even though I am far behind). I also love how it is broken down into different sections for each week!

    • Thank you so much! We thought focusing on different topics for challenges would make every week different from previous weeks!

  • SUCH a great challenge – especially loving the week focused on digital cleansing! I feel so much better when I’ve cleaned out my email inbox!

    • I couldn’t agree with you more, Erin! I love seeing zero emails sitting in my work email or personal email. Makes me feel so clam, haha!

  • Ooh organizing my desktop is something I’ve been meaning to do forever. These are all such great reminders of things, I really love this challenge!

    • Organizing my desktop was a huge project at one point because I wanted to create an easy system for blogging photos, etc. Once I did, it felt so great!

  • Leah

    I must say, I think this is amazing how vulnerable you’re being through these posts. Thank you so much for sharing. These challenges are so needed for me and I definitely plan to take some of these for myself. You go girl!

    • Thank you so much, Leah! It’s so wonderful to hear the kind words and support from other bloggers who are also interested in these challenges and posts!

  • These are so nice suggestions! I always think about cleansing my life in general, but somehow I get lost on the way. I also tend to think about meditation when it comes to cleanse your mind.
