How Technology Could Be Prematurely Aging Us
Technology has benefitted our professional and personal lives in many ways, making tasks and communication quicker and more efficient all the time. However, having technology at the tips of our fingers constantly can sometimes be more harmful than helpful both mentally and physically. As it turns out, living in the digital age can have some serious beauty side effects that aren’t pretty. Staring at screens all day can hurt your skin, muscles, and even increase stress levels. Here are more ways that technology could be draining you of your youthful glow.
The Danger of Being Indoors Constantly
The sun is the only natural source of Vitamin D, so if you’re spending 8 or more hours a day inside working a desk job, chances are your Vitamin D level is being depleted. In general, a lack of sunlight can lead you to looking a little too pale. To help preserve your healthy youthful glow, make sure you’re outside for at least 30 minutes a day.
The Appearance of Crow’s Feet
Staring at a computer screen all day at work and then coming home and watching TV or scrolling through your smartphone can lead to premature crow’s feet around your eyes due to squinting to read things on bright screens. Make sure you’re looking away from your screen every 10 to 15 minutes to help prevent crow’s feet from sprouting up. If your workload doesn’t give you the luxury of taking frequent breaks, try one of Pevonia’s anti-aging eye solutions.
How Sitting Affects the Body
Sitting around all day in a computer chair is one of the easiest ways to pack on the pounds around your waistline, not to mention the treats and goodies that always seem to be floating around the office. Your posture can also worsen with daily and consistent sitting. Always remember that wellness is a lifestyle choice. Stay active by exercising a few days a week and make time for yourself to properly unwind and relax from both life and technology.
Fight Back And Stay Beautiful
Don’t sacrifice your good looks for the sake of technology. After work, resist even looking at emails or checking social media. Schedule some quality “me time” by getting a manicure or a soothing massage. Our Wellness Membership is the perfect way to remind yourself that you deserve to be nurtured! Your body will thank you!
