We’ve increased technology yet become more sedentary, stressed and isolated. 24/7 techno junkies. Technology can be an addiction and anything to an extreme results in imbalance, thus will produce issues.
Wellness is about balance: head, heart and body. Often a person is depleted in one or two areas and the consequences are revealed. For example, if a persons priority is to lose weight, beware. Granted there has been a short term goal and commitment; however, if it is not attached with an emotional long term goal (lifestyle vs. losing weight), the roller coaster will most likely continue. Instead, decide to get healthy and in the process you will need to lose weight.
There are many apps and technology tools to help; however, the motivation needs to be internal. Dig a little deeper and get to know your “why”. Attach emotions to it too. Then, when those challenging days come, and they will, remind yourself of your WHY.
Technology may wake you in the morning and be a part of your everyday life; but utilize it well. Remember to embrace face-to-face relationships, enjoy nature and relaxing without your phone or computer . Detox from technology for a few hours each day and even for a day.
I remember taking a week’s vacation to the Bahamas’ with my teenage daughter a few years ago. We choice to detox with no cell phones or e-mail. The first day we were adjusting to the disconnect but after that, the vacation time was truly that…a vacation.
Are you plugged in 24/7? Take my TCOY Challenge and detox from technology. Spring is here…get outside and enjoy all Mother Nature has to offer.
