Technology can help reduce anxiety and stress, here's how...

Technology was supposed to make our life easier, wasn't it?

So why does it feel like the more "plugged in" we are, the more stress we have?

I don't need to tell you the stress that the year 2020 brought or the crazy rise in mental health problems. COVID might have been a pandemic but stress is the world-wide pandemic that no one talks about.

The truth is you should not have to deal with stress alone. Before I get into the article I want to be clear: if you are suffering from stress, poor sleep, pain, or any mental health related problem, please talk to your doctor, therapist, or other appropriate licensed medical professional.

Now.

Back to technology, stress, and all that jazz.

Technology has brought us closer together.

Some very amazing and magical ways like video calls with your parents or relatives that are on the opposite side of the earth!

On the flip side, now your boss is also in your pocket and the custom ring tone for him/her sends a shiver down your spin every time a notification comes in.

Getting away and "unplugging" to destress is hard...

It's hard to find the time.

It's hard to make the commitment.

It's hard to quiet the mind.

It's hard to sit still.

It's REALLY hard when you don't see results instantly because we are living in an instant world and expect everything NOW.

So you slowly make excuses to meditate later, have a yoga session later, journal later, workout later, and later is quickly forgotten.

Why not use technology to help us unplug?!

Anxiety, stress, sleep, energy, etc.
