“How many apps are open right now?” – I asked myself as I decided to close apps running in the background on my phone.
I guessed 4 or 5 apps. But, there were close to 20 apps open and running in the background.
This happens nearly every time I decide to close apps. I underestimate how easily app baggage accumulates.
It struck me that mental and physical baggage accumulates just the same way – silently and continuously.
So, it is our responsibility to create a regular de-cluttering routine to clear enough space to enable us to be conscious and engaged. This could be regular reflection, meditation, a walk in the woods or a shower. It doesn’t matter which approach we choose.
It just matters that we choose one.
