People differ in their responses to technology and in how much they can and can’t handle. One thing to avoid is tech-overload – allowing technology to get the better of you, overwhelm you or stress you out. Knowing how to manage your use of technology helps you maintain balance and sanity.
Do you know your tech-overload level? Here are some questions to ask yourself:
• What are the signs that I have had too much technology?
• What aspects of technology get me tired and off center (e.g. too much internet surfing, too long on a social media site, having too many e mails to answer or getting blurry-eyed from too much time on your computer or phone)?
• What’s my optimum balance in using and not using technology to get my work done?
• When does technology begin to diminish my creativity and efficiency?
Knowing your tech-overload level helps you manage your work and life. To everything there is a season and time. That includes technology, too.
