A Better Life With Less Technology

By Donna Stark

Are you feeling particularly stressed out? Do you have trouble unwinding at the end of the day? Does your brain feel as if it's about to explode? If so, you aren't alone! There may be several reasons why you and others are feeling this way, but the biggest contributing factor is technology overload. Technology overload? It's true! And it's about time you take a step away from some of it. Here's what your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have to say about this topic.

Technology Overload and Your Health

We have never lived in a society that is as "turned on" and connected as it is today. There is something to watch on TV every second of every hour, we can video call a friend who is living in a different part of the world whenever we want, we can complete our work and get an education while sitting on our couches, and we can literally buy whatever our hearts desire by pushing a few buttons on our phones. To say technology hasn't impacted our lives would be the same as saying the sun doesn't shine. But what price have we paid for all this convenience? Take a look at what technology overload can lead to.

  • Poor sleep
  • Compromised health (obesity, sickness, disease, joint dysfunction)
  • Increased stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Isolation
  • Wasted time

Ways to Step Away From Technology

Luckily, it isn't as hard as you think to take a break from technology. Here are some simple suggestions on how to do so from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

  • Set specific time periods during the day to abstain from electronic devices
  • Aim for at least one technology-free day each week
  • Delete time-sucking apps from your phone
  • Get back to the hobbies and passions you used to engage it
  • Go for a walk when you feel tempted to scroll on your phone
  • Remove all electronic devices from the bedrooms in your home
  • Stop using technology at least one hour before bed
  • Connect with others in real life, not through social media
  • Encourage those around you to detox from technology as well (there is strength in numbers)

A Better Life With Less Technology

There is no better time than the start of a new year to establish healthier habits. Give your brain a break and boost your overall well-being by cutting out as much technology from your life as you can. It may end up being the best decision you will ever make for yourself!
