Step 1: Delete and unsubscribe.
Be ruthless. If you are not actually going to read them or you do not need the information, delete and unsubscribe.
It is time well invested because the next time you log in to your email, you will immediately feel much less stress and anxiety. It also makes it easier to keep “pruning” your inbox as new emails come in, that you no longer want to receive or read.
Step 2: Manage your Social Media.
Are you overwhelmed with notifications from Facebook groups and pages and friends? If so, then any time you open social media, you are exposing yourself to more subliminal stress which raises anxiety levels.
Spend some time managing your social media by noticing how you feel. Unfollow pages or people, remove yourself from groups that are not giving value or creating drama.
Step 3: Manage your viewing habits.
Different situations in your life can also change how your body reacts to certain programs. For example, when I developed chronic illness and the adrenal fatigue that went with it, I found that I could no longer tolerate shows that I used to watch.
Prior to Hashimoto’s, I was a big fan of “The Walking Dead” and was looking forward to the new season. When I started watching though, I just couldn’t handle it. The fear factor and adrenaline reactions were so unpleasant and debilitating that I had to stop watching.
It is well worth the small amount of time invested!
