6 Practical Email Tips

Fitness & Conservation

Anyone who is online sends and receives emails. Some are annoying, some are spam and some are super relevant with awesome content from businesses and people we love... however there are little tricks to emailing to help it go smoother, keep you safe and reduce frustration.

With health and wellness + conscious living in focus all over the world, many innovative programs and ideas have sprung forth to combine these into practical daily habits and lifestyles. The below 'fitness outlets' are great for people who want to get fit AND care for the environment!

1. Organisation: Keep your inbox organised by checking your account daily and filing emails as they come in to appropriate folders, flag urgent ones and respond to others sooner rather than later + unsubscribe from email lists that no longer serve you or are relevant anymore.

Green Gym: According to Wikipedia the 'Green Gym' concept was originally developed in the late 1990s by Dr William Bird an Oxford-based general practitioner and The Conservation Volunteers - a scheme which inspires you to improve both your health and the environment at the same time; improving your strength and stamina, boosting your practical skills and confidence and benefiting your local green spaces by getting together each week to do practical conservation or gardening work.

2. Junk/Spam Folder: Spam filters are a lifesaver but sometimes they can put a genuine (and often important) email into the Junk/Spam folder by 'accident' so think of this as your 'Second Inbox' and clear it just like your main inbox.

3. Legalities: Know the rules about spam and adding people's addresses to 'lists' without their permission... there can be big consequences.

Plogging: Picking up plastic while jogging

4. Safety: If an email looks 'fishy' don't open any attachments or click any links - look for clues to its authenticity... but trust your gut - some legit emails look spammy and some spam looks legit.

#trashtag: A social challenge where people pick a place filled with litter, clean it up and post before and after pictures online. This has been extremely beneficial to many places! Learn more here: www.bbc.com

5. Privacy: Utilise To, CC & BCC, eg. when sending to more than one person use BCC - this keeps each address private from the other recipients.

Strawking: Collecting straws while diving

6. Attachments: Keep the file size of attachments as small as possible to make sure they send and are received - usually maximum 7mb per email.

Beach Cleanup: Picking up rubbish along coastlines and beaches - this is super easy and so good for the soul! You just go for a relaxing stroll down the beach with a bag for the rubbish and just pick up what litter you come across... easy. Learn more here: www.projectjonah.org.nz
