Turkey Medicals member in Turkey and Neurology Specialist Prof. Dr. told, “Mental fatigue due to technology has increased further in the pandemic process.” She explained the ways to deal with this problem…

With the intensive use of technology in the COVID-19 epidemic, our lives have become even more digital. Therefore, new ones have been added to the complaints about our health every day. We feel constant fatigue, mental blur and burnout. In fact, we often suffer from headaches, eye fatigue and insomnia… these symptoms can also be caused by “digital fatigue”, said a neurologist Professor Dr. UC listed the formulas of digital detox…


Separate the technological time needed to do your daily work from the technological time that only steals your time. Use as much as you need to use on a work shift, and then focus on real interactions. In particular, turn off your devices during the hours you spend at home at the end of the day. Sometimes technological use becomes a habit. For example, when we eat, before going to sleep, after breakfast on weekends, we constantly habitually take our phones in our hands. Destroy these habits. Spend time with your loved ones while eating, not with your phone, but replace your habit with a hobby such as reading books before going to sleep. Another way to start your digital detox is to turn off notifications on your phone. Turn off all non-essential social media app notifications. If staying away from your phone, smart tablet is stressing you out, or you’re bored without them, it may be time to reschedule social activities, evening walks, or a discarded hobby.


Specify an area, such as a bedroom or dining table. Make it a strict rule not to use phones, tablets or laptops in these areas. Also, leave all your electronic devices a few hours before going to sleep.


Limit yourself to 5 minutes to check your emails, messages, social media, and do so only 3-5 times a day. Most of us work from home because of Covid-19. Unfortunately, working from your laptop in pajamas at home doesn’t always bring comfort and convenience. Most home workers can be exhausted by excessive workload or worsen work performance because they cannot clarify the time limit between sleep-eat-work. If you want to manage your energy correctly, be careful to sleep, get up, eat and finish working at the same time every day.
