      Is your smartphone stressing you out?

      Almost all Americans 95 percent own a cell phone, and out of this, 77 percent own a smartphone. This makes the smartphone an integral part of our lifestyles. From connecting with family and friends to the workplace, we are constantly being pinged or called. While this has its positive impact, it has a downside too. It leaves us with far less time to think or be alone with ourselves. Constant staring at the screen tires the eyes and the spine. Overall, studies have found that smartphones have become a source of stress in the modern world and this is now known as technostress.

      The Always On culture

      Even when you leave your workplace, the smartphone smartly keeps you connected to work! Instead of leaving your stress behind, you carry it along with you. A new email that pops up on your work inbox is hard to ignore. When your body undergoes stress, your heart rate and breath quicken. Your muscles get ready to defend you. Regularly having to undergo this stress response damages health. Excessive cellphone use may also lead to anxiety and depression.

      Stress feeds on FOMO

      Work-related stress apart, there is stress caused by what is known as the "fear of missing out" (FOMO). With social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, everyone wants to stay updated all the time. They end up checking their phones very frequently so that they do not run the risk of missing out any important social events or interactions.

      How to deal with techno stress?

      A digital detox will help you put the phone away and get your life on track. Try sports, yoga or meditation. Spend time with family and friends sans smartphone. Earmark a specific time of the day where you avoid using it. When you manage your smartphone time well, your sleep gets a boost too.
