Wherever we are, we’re surrounded by screens
While phoning, messaging, listening to music, reading, working in the office, using GPS navigation or just our car radio. Even in the subway and shopping malls there are moving images trying to draw our attention.
As we’re so used to look at flat displays, doing so already became a habit. And since even books and magazines are replaced with digital versions, we also take our screens to bed – and the whole digital world right with it.
The information flood we encouter there keeps our minds alerted and social interactions (e.g. on social media) easily upset or unsettle us emotionally. Neither is favorable for a good rest.
Therefore he best stress relief at night is both simple and effective: Power off!
