This week I’ve been having fun with my new Instagram account – posting stuff, checking out other people’s images and profiles, and so on. And while all of this is super exciting and fun, when combined with frequent Facebook checks, Pinterest scrolls and Twitter glimpses (and I am not even mentioning emails and texts), I could feel myself becoming more and more distracted and agitated. What I had can probably be diagnosed as “social media overload” and it’s quite common in our information-dense age. In our efforts to “stay connected” we can become disconnected from ourselves. Potential side effects: overstimulation, low energy, “brain fog”, as well as overall feeling of being unbalanced and ungrounded.
What’s the solution here? To step away from the devices and take time to move and breathe. Try this 20-minute yoga practice for sensory overload that will help you regain your composure, balance your energy and clear your head. It will help with the neck tension, too!
