Are you one who keeps a dozen windows open on the computer while answering a phone call, writing an email and sending a text message? Then perhaps you suffer from infoxication, also called infobesity or information overload, a disease in the Digital Era of 21st century consisting of the inability to process the excess of information received daily.
Being over-informed can cause damage to the body and brain. That is why it is necessary to use digital resources better to gain access to the information that is free of saturated fats. Here are 5 tips for a healthy and balanced informative diet:
- Avoid snacks. Try to read the text without checking your social media, cellphone or mails at the same time.
- Stop binge eating. Consuming large amounts of information in a short time can cause a sensation of heaviness and intolerance to certain contents. Select the information according to your work and personal priorities.
- Bye-bye junk food. Although there are very appetizing contents, these usually contain a high degree of expired and processed data that can harm your health. Verify that the information comes from reliable and safe digital sources.
- Practice some sport. Physical exercise helps you fight stress and release endorphins that make you feel happy.
- Miracle diets, do not exist. Do not trust everything you read on the Internet. Try to search quality information and make your own judgment.
