Is Technology adding to your PMS Symptoms?

Technology is a wonderful thing, it allows us to connect with people all over the world, to work remotely and even, switch on the washing machine before you get home.

But with all this convenience and connection, it does have its downsides, such as the addiction of social media, distracting us from the real world and the people physically in front of us, causing our minds to be constantly alert, frazzled and irritated.

If you suffer with the more psychological symptoms of PMS then this is something to be aware of, as too much time in front of a screen, will result in you having more intense symptoms.

Of course it would be easy for me to say, just reduce your usage of technology during your PMS phase, but technology is highly addictive, so the chances of you doing that are fairly low.

Instead, I would recommend reviewing your everyday usage and make a commitment to start new healthier technology habits that will lead to a more permanent behavioural change.

This may feel difficult to implement, but if you do stick with it, you will soon be enlightened by the positive psychological changes that it can bring, such as:

A quieter mind

Enhanced focus on the task in hand

A happier mood

Improved sleep

Making this change, is just one simple step to reduce your PMS symptoms and improve your everyday life, so have a think….. are you willing to reduce your daily screen time? Could you see the benefit of spending less time connected? If so, make the change and enjoy that Happy Month you wanted!
