Tech4Boomers is working on how to give you more useful info and provide you with Tech Health, Tech Social Tips, and general technology advice from diverse resources.
In this time of CoronaVirus, and with the onslaught of various ideas for the well-being of our society, we are increasingly confronted with stressful situations arising from our connections with technology devices: computers, cellphones, tablets, etc. We are turning to these devices perhaps more than we want to, but we “have to”. Stress levels are running high.
- What can we do to ‘detach’ from this onslaught of discomfort, or at least soften, allay the feelings?
Before I retired, I worked for about 30 years as a ‘tech person’, i.e., Help Desk, System Administration. My days were ‘filled’ with problem solving resulting from computer issues. In those times, computer stress was a considerable concern for me and the team I worked with.
- Flash forward to the complicated and extensively increased use of computers for our daily connection to the world. That stress is magnified in numerous ways.“For the sense of smell, almost more than any other, has the power to recall memories and it is a pity that we use it so little“. Rachel Carson
This brings us to our new opportunities: Aromatherapy will be among our new subjects in Tech4Boomers. As a certified aromatherapist, I have been working toward assisting others to alleviate stress and other physical concerns (e.g., neck stress, headaches and other maladies) by using some of the best resources available on how to use essential oils, hydrosols and herbs. As always, this information is not to suggest that the latter ideas/substances are intended to diagnose, treat, cure, prevent any medical condition, or disease. We recommend that you consult with your healthcare provider before using or experimenting with essential oils, especially if you take medications.
- For this post we recommend that you try some complementary alternative methods (CAM).
- Tip 1: Try diffusing essential oils. Here’s a link which talks about how to use essential oils safely. https://tisserandinstitute.org/safety/safety-guidelines/
- Tip 2: Take a break from your computer. This link may give you some ideas on how to do that. https://ehorus.com/computer-stress/
That’s all for now. Let’s stay connected for more ideas on how to make our lives more in tune with methods for a stress less forward outlook.
All the best for your well-being,
