#1 Define your Technology rules

The first step is defining which "new technologies" fall into this "optional" category.

Make sure to evaluate the right technologies. Text messaging, Instagram or Facebook are examples of the types of technologies you need to evaluate; your microwave, fridge are not.

After the evaluation decide which of them are sufficiently "optional" that you can take a break for 30 days during the declutter process.

Consider the technology optional unless its temporary removal could harm your professional or personal life.

Example: If you stop checking your work email, it would harm your career.
