STEPS TO SCREEN TIME SUCCESS

Dealing with internet fatigue

BY JULIA LLOYD

What is internet fatigue?

Internet fatigue comes when you refresh and read screens compulsively until you find yourself exhausted by it. It can be an anxiety that comes with feeling trapped in a whirlwind of information.

ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM INTERNET FATIGUE?

Mentally, you may find issues concentrating in front of a screen, memory impairment and problems differentiating your thoughts from realities.

Example: Did I complete that task and forget, or just think about completing it? Physically, you may find yourself tired yet unable to sleep, or experience aches and pains from lack of movement.

TAKE A BREAK!

Don’t feel bad if you feel you need to take a step back from the world of online working. Take a moment to breathe and relax before heading back to your work.

THREE WAYS TO STAY FOCUSED

Find your perfect balance of background noise or silence to create the perfect environment to sit down at your computer and work.

To combat a distracting home environment, set up a consistent place in your home to do your work. Wherever you decide to do this, consider this place a ‘work-zone’ and don’t let yourself slack until you’ve completed your tasks.

Creating routines can help combat internet fatigue when working from home. Make sure to include breaks and avoid staring at your screen for hours on end.
