Take a mindful approach to life and organization

mindfulness organizingIf you are wondering why you feel more stressed than ever before, technology may be to blame.  When we remain constantly connected through smart phones and other electronic devices we receive information at unprecedented speed, faster than our brains are able to process. This induces the body’s stress response and there is a growing body of evidence that chronic activation of this system can be damaging to our health. Studies have also shown that technology may have a negative impact on depression and even long term memory. “Technology is part of culture and we just accept it, but we don’t have time to process it and it induces fear and anxiety,” says Peggy Sealfon, an author, speaker and stress and anxiety coach.  “We need to teach coping skills. We need to get to the root cause of our stress.”
