Are you surfing your life away on the internet and overloaded with email. Maybe it is time for a break. Take a 24 hour hiatus and get more done, and start de-stressing.
When we spend our days driven by the “screen”, we can miss out on the amazing things all around us.
Look for the natural elements in your environment
Did you see birds or fluffy clouds?
Did you sense the chance of rain or snow. Did you notice the wind blowing leaves around in your neighborhood?
Try and go low-tech for your information for a short period of time
Did you pick up an actual paper bound book or read an old-fashioned newspaper or magazine?
Write a piece of correspondence the old-fashioned way
Consider writing a thank you note by hand. This short break away from the screen and keyboard may help give you a needed rest.
Choose to have a conversation
Instead of emailing a colleague or friend. Face away from the computer, turn off the apps and just hold a phone conversation.
Designate Screen Free hours in your home or office
Select some hours to be your screen free hours. This break will be good for your eyes, thinking and concentration.
Can you think of more easy ways to prevent screen fatigue? Send me a comment or follow-up email. Better yet, you could also pick up the phone and give me a call.
