Every January a lot of us step out into the new year with grand promises of getting fitter, losing weight, cutting back on the drink, or perhaps it’s to declutter the house, have a purge, and start the new decade feeling fresh and free. But have you thought about your digital life?
The Evening Standard has a great list for helping attain ‘Inbox Zero’, or getting the momentum to finally launch that start up you have had in mind for too long. IT support experts in Doncaster have some tips to declutter your digital.
It can never be stressed enough, but change your passwords! Far too many people neglect this simple task, and worse, have the same password for multiple sites and logins.

For a digital detox, why not try deleting the social media apps off your phone, read a book on the commute instead. If you’re really missing Facebook or Twitter, or photos of everyone’s lunch on Instagram, then reinstall them. But give it a week, and see how much time you free up!
