The impact of COVID has not only affected our physical health but also something that now we are living that is our digital health. Ms. Suchitra Surve in this episode speaks on Digital Health during COVID Times.
A lot has been spoken about the novel corona virus, the world started spending more time at home and for precaution. The more time people spent at home, the more usage of gadgets. This led to a global concern that is of digital health. The new normal which includes online studies, work from home, a lot of video call meetings with friends, families, online entertainment, movies, games, and even online parties all has become a part of the new normal which has led us to dependent on technology.
Technology can be very helpful. But in the past few months, we have seen that this technology has had a negative impact on our well- being. So, it is important to find a balance so that you can enjoy all of the benefits of minimizing the harms.
Let us look at how we can make healthy use of technology:
First and for most keep in touch with family and friends. We are just socially distancing ourselves and not distancing ourselves from people secondly, build new skills, or learn something in a fun way. There are so many options available online so go online and add value to yourselves. Try to watch videos and talk or read blogs that inspire or motivate you to bring out the best of you and to help you reach your potential. Last but not least monitor your physical activity and health goals. Do not forget we need to be physically active to be active online. So, monitor your health.
Let us now understand when technology becomes a problem for us, identifying when we have got addicted to gadgets, constantly thinking about going online or checking your phone for messages or some kind of emails or trying to avoid situations or trying to avoid work. Feeling anxious or at a loss when you don’t have your gadgets around you or when you feel like you can’t control the technology use and you have to need to use it whether it is required or not.
The way technology has overtaken our life, we cannot overlook it. But overusing technology can have multiple effects like internet addiction, wastage of time, health hazards like dryness in eyes, back issues, posture issues, and physical inactivity.
To avoid the harm and over usage of technology let’s try and find out what can we do to bring about a healthy lifestyle and enhance our usage and relationship with technology? Set a schedule for using gadgets & technology and follow it stick to it. Ask yourself how quickly you really need to respond to texts, emails, or other messages. Regularly choose off-screen activities over on-screen activities. Take regular breaks during the day. Spend some time without technology for this start small. Consider a 'digital vacation.' Choose one day a week to completely stay away from a device. You may start from a few hours a week. Look at when, where, how, and why you are using digital technology within the various contexts of your life. Be it education, entertainment, work, or connecting with people.
Remember, increased digital dependency can have negative impacts during this pandemic which in the long term can affect your well-being, So, not just your health but digital health needs to be taken care of. We know you are on-screen watching this but you should know when to switch off and what to see. Choose judiciously
Stay safe Stay healthy Stay connected
How To Make Best Use Of Covid TimesIn this episode, Suchitra Surve talks on How To Make The Best Use of COVID Times.
A few months ago we entered the brand-new decade and suddenly the world just flipped, the reason, Pandemic and because of it, we all have been experiencing a parallel spread of anxiety, instability, impatience, intolerance, and frustration, which is natural.
This pandemic has affected everyone irrespective of the age whether it is the school students, college students, working professionals, individuals, and even businesses.
So, what is the impact that it has had???
Schools students are now forced to be at home, no outdoor play, no friends, boredom and suddenly switching to studying online, losing touch with reading, writing, and interaction with people.
On the other hand, college students who are used to freedom have suddenly started facing new restrictions, the final year students facing confusion about their job prospects and campus placements, the obvious worries about the future, and managing online classes or online internships and no personal attention.
The most affected population is the working population. Work for many has always been a reason for stress and now it is work from home, managing finances, managing uncertainty about career, managing children, spouses, siblings, senior citizens, lack of social life and work for home too. Yes, these are tough times for all of us, but most of us have been able to cope up with it and adjust to the “New Normal.” So, despite being able to re-gain our routines to some extent, our learning should never stop.
So, let us look at some ways to make the best use of this time.
For school children it is the best time to learn, explore hobbies, maybe learn a new language, develop skills to be independent, strengthen their basics and inculcate habits like reading, listening, observing, and even mastering the art of doing nothing, being patient.
For college students it is really a good time to explore their interests from a career perspective, they can research and think about various career options, speak to a lot of professionals, try to prepare for the challenges ahead, while doing so learn new skills, take up courses online, update resume and ensure that your physical and mental health is good and most importantly learn to be independent and self-sufficient.
For the working population focus would be on strengthening the bonds with people, the connect, the network. updating skills is essential to survive in these uncertain times, getting used to technology trying to plan things ahead whether it is from a career point of view or finances and not to forget to unwind yourself and take care of yourself if possible try to have a different connection with your family and friends.
So, regardless of age, we all should have a routine, planning is essential so plan out things, learn, adapt, explore, connect, exercise, indulge in self-care, and most importantly maintain positive well-being.
Remember, this situation is only temporary and things will go back to normal eventually. But when we are yet to find out but till then try to find healthy ways to cope with the situation and don’t be too hard on yourself.
Stay home, Stay safe, Use time wisely.
