5 Quick Tips to Feel Better in the Digital Age
It goes without saying that if you’re reading this right now - you’re either on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Maybe you’re at home, maybe you’re on your lunch break at work, or maybe you’re lying in bed starting or ending your day. With our modern society fueled by digital use, it can be easy to get lost in the stress of it all.
While technology now allows us to connect ever so easily to the people we love all around the world, it opens up new opportunities for us to work outside of the office, and it has ushered in a new era of convenience with online shopping, banking, bookings and so forth. It can be hard to balance it all, here’s 5 ways I like to manage stress and quiet the noise.
Creating a sacred space - have a scheduled time to be alone mornings usually work best for me then complete steps 2 and 3.
Meditation - Breathwork - The best App I've found is the Aura App. They have guided meditations, hypnosis, and breathwork that help you feel better in just 3 minutes, or I like to listen to a book on Audible.
Whether going for a quick walk, getting dressed in the morning, Audible is a great way to stay engaged and feed your mind. Right now I’m listening to The First 90 Days since I just started a new gig. I’m listening to Summary Michael D Watkin's The First 90 Days: Proven Strategies for Getting Up to Speed Faster and Smarter, Updated and Expanded by Ant Hive Media, narrated by Tristan Wright on my Audible app. Try Audible and get it here.
Spiritual time - I always start my day with a prayer and a plan in The Bible app.
Supplements/Vitamins - To avoid the mid day slump I always remember to take my Ashwagandha gummies and Neuriva Plus. The gummies keep me calm and the Neuriva eliminates the brain fog - You can get both from my favorite place Amazon.
Physical Exercise - Don’t underestimate the power of the link between physical and mental health - Go on a walk. I recently had knee surgery so Physical Therapy and standing Yoga on the Peloton app have been a savior for me. I recently did Beyonce's yoga Peloton.
We are all finding ways to navigate the virtual world mentally and physically fit, and I hope these tips work for you as they keep me calm, happy and energized!
