Computer health doesn’t just mean virus-free. It also means clutter-free. Energy gets stuck inside computers, as well as in homes and workplaces. It can influence writer’s block and feeling stuck in a rut. How often do we stare at our computers wondering what to do next? Stuck energy!
Technology has gone crazy, I said, when I first heard about computer viruses. I stared at my very first computer, a birthday present that promised to transform my life. Way back then a virus meant a cold, flu or other illness. But this was a lump of metal and plastic! Even so, I didn’t dare use it in case the virus spread. These days I am more concerned with the clutter inside my computer, with all those files, folders, apps and unwanted software that seems to download itself without permission.
With life’s fast pace, instant communication, immediate demands and lack of hours in a day, uncluttering the computer never makes tomorrow’s to-do list, before we crash out at the end of the day, absolutely exhausted from ‘doing’ all day. But recently, while our new website was developing, we had a tremendous few weeks of clutter clearing our computers, and a wonderful sense of wellbeing appeared, along with a feeling that all’s well and things are definitely going to move forward.
I recommend making time and having a go. It’s really energising.
