Ayurveda offers valuable insights and practices to deal with digital fatigue and overwhelm in today’s technology dominated world. Putting an emphasis on balance and harmony between the mind, body, and spirit, and applying these principles, can help mitigate negative effects of excessive digital exposure:
Set Boundaries: Establish specific time limits on digital devices and stick to them. Create boundaries for work, leisure, and relaxation time. Avoid using devices at least one hour before bedtime to promote better sleep.
🧘♀️Digital Detox: Plan regular digital detoxes, disconnect from all devices for a designated period. Use this time to engage in activities that promote mindfulness and connection with the real world, such as spending time in nature, meditating, or practicing yoga.
🌎Follow a Daily Routine (Dinacharya): Create a daily routine that includes designated periods for work, recreation, and rest. Following a consistent schedule helps regulate the body’s natural rhythms and reduces stress.
Practicing Mindfulness: Be mindful of your digital usage. Instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media, focus on the present moment and the actual purpose of your digital activity.
🏡Create a Digital-Free Space: Designate specific areas in your home or workplace where digital devices are not allowed, such as your bedroom. This can help create a more balanced environment and reduce overexposure.
👁️ Eye Exercises: Staring at screens for prolonged periods can strain the eyes. Practice simple eye exercises, like rolling the eyes in circular motions or looking at distant objects to relax and strengthen the eyes.
🌿Herbal Support: Ayurveda suggests certain herbs that can help alleviate digital fatigue. Ashwagandha and Brahmi are known for their adaptogenic properties, helping the body adapt to stress and promoting mental clarity.
🥗Digital-Free Meal Times: Avoid using digital devices while eating. Instead, savor your meals mindfully, focusing on the taste, texture, and aroma of the food.
💦Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and counteract the dehydrating effects of excessive screen time.
😴Use the “Night Shift” Mode: Most digital devices now have a “Night Shift” or “Blue Light Filter” feature that reduces the amount of blue light emitted, which can disrupt sleep patterns. Enable this feature, especially during the evening and night.
