Use Technology to Your Advantage

One of the best ways to live comfortably in this modern onslaught of technology and things to do is by letting technology do the work for you. Way too many people let their devices control them, rather than using the devices to control their daily lives. Make use of reminders, use calendars, and maximize your technology as much as possible so you’re not as stressed and not as busy. If you’re someone likes to get the news, you can get all of it send to your phone, thereby maximizing just how easy it is to consume and digest media information.

This is absolutely vital to ensuring you’re not overloading your senses as well as your body.

If you’re able to reduce the amount of technology you’re using, you’ll be that much better off in terms of actually enjoying your time. Whether it’s meditating or going outside for a 30 minute run down the block, it’s important to get away from technology. Studies have shown that too much exposure to technology not only contributes to sleep deprivation (which hinders your long-term productivity) but it can also contribute to higher levels of stress.

Stress is not good for your body, so rather than inviting more stress in, get away from technology when you can to keep stress out.
