How to Deal with Psyhocological Stress – a Gift of the Digital Era?

Twitter feed, Snapchat, Facebook status, emails, selfies, Instagram – welcome to the life of every 20-something around the globe! Digital age has really taken a toll on people, haven’t it? Today, life is all about a constant barrage of information that have created and nurtured a phenomenon called FOMO (fear of missing out). Nobody wants to feel left out and that is what the race is all about.

It was not really that long ago when bus or train commuters used to stare out of the windows with wandering eyes, chat with friends or read books. However, the modern commune reveals only one phenomenon – people with their heads down, swiping, scrolling and zooming luminescent screens. Smartphones have made the Internet easily accessible and truly made the world everyone’s oyster, but there is just one problem – when do you switch off?

Psychological Stress – a Widespread Occurrence

How many times has it happened that you are trying to sleep, but constantly feel that your phone is buzzing? Well, you are not alone. If the scientific examinations are to be believed, there is a link between psychological stress and digital technology. Life online is addictive and that makes it difficult for people to cut back. And this has led to the addition of one more type of stress to the already burgeoning list of health conditions suffered by the millennial!

However, if you are experiencing psychological stress or any form of Internet-addiction, you need to seriously step back. You need to reduce the amount of time that you spend simply staring at that screen. There are a number of health & wellness centers that can help you achieve total digital detox through 100% natural ways. 

Combat Psychological Stress by Making Small Lifestyle Changes

  • Bedtime is strictly for sleeping: Do you enjoy checking your Facebook messages or doing a little online shopping while in bed? Well, you need to absolutely resist doing that. You are probably not aware of this, but the blue light emitting from your device is responsible for interrupting your natural circadian rhythm or wake/sleep cycle. The light causes disruption in the production of melatonin, which is the hormone that signals that it is time for you to sleep. And this is the reason why you feel sleepy when at work during the day and stay wide awake at night like an owl.
  • Practice meditation: Finding time to relax is probably the most difficult thing for most of you. However, by practicing meditation for only 10 minutes every day, you will be able to normalize your stress levels. You can meditate while at your desk, before going to sleep or even when taking a shower. A little walk in the park can also be extremely healthy for your overall well-being. You can also make use of your digital devices to listen to mindfulness music that will soothe your mind and help you to concentrate better.
  • Meet up with friends: Friendship is one of the most underrated medicines. A little pep talk from friends can really go a long way. So, make sure that you talk to them and try meeting them as often as you can. When you are able to talk about your problems and concerns, you will automatically feel light and unburdened. Also, meeting friends will make you laugh, which is as good a medicine as any. You need to keep your smartphone at bay and make some real, human connections.
  • Get bored sometimes: Since life is so busy and always full of activities, you might get bored easily. However, it is surprisingly good to be bored sometimes, to not do anything. Just stay still and let your mind wander. Once you invite boredom into your life, you will find the noises of the world getting quieter and you being able to listen to your inner-self. And as naturopaths would say, the cure is within you. So, if you want to be free of stress, take a good look at yourself. 

If you think you cannot fight psychological stress on your own or you are way too addicted to keep your hands off of your digital devices, you can always visit a naturopathy center. These centers are usually situated in the middle of lush green so that they can help you come closer to nature, as well. Even if you visit these state-of-the-art facilities for a week, you will be able to make a huge difference to your life. When you go back home, you will definitely become a changed person – a person with a lot of energy and vivacity, and zero stress.
