How to Manage the Inbox Overwhelm

Do you get overwhelmed by your inbox?

Prefer to read it? Here are the main points!

Managing an overflowing inbox can be a daunting task, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and stressed. However, there are tools available that can make the process easier, faster, and less stressful. In this blog post, we will explore some of these tools and how they can help you regain control of your inbox.

1. Chuck: This tool allows you to collapse emails by sender, making it easy to delete or archive multiple emails from newsletters or retailers in one go. By quickly clearing out unnecessary emails, you can create momentum and make the task feel more manageable.

2. Speaking Email: With this app, you can have your inbox read out to you. It reads the sender, subject, and gives you the option to listen to more or take actions like archiving or deleting. This tool is particularly useful when you’re on the go or want to multitask while going through your emails.

3. Speechify: Speechify reads out emails and other content on the page for you. It provides an estimated reading time, helping you gauge the length of an email. This tool is beneficial for tackling longer emails while doing other tasks, as it allows you to listen rather than read.

4. Sunsama: Sunsama is a versatile tool that helps you turn emails into tasks. By moving emails into your task list, it archives them from your inbox and prompts you to take action. This ensures that actionable emails are not left unattended, as they are transformed into tasks that can be added to your calendar.

If you’re tired of feeling overwhelmed by your inbox, give these tools a try. Start with Chuck to clear out unnecessary emails, then use Speaking Email and Speechify to make the process more efficient. Finally, utilise Sunsama to turn emails into actionable tasks. Remember, you don’t have to achieve Inbox Zero but these tools can help you take control of your inbox and enjoy a stress-free freelance week.
