23 Fabulously Fun Ways to Beat Screen-Induced Anxiety

By Amy Ouzoonian




I was chatting today with a colleague on social media about screen-induced anxiety. We've all been there, right? Staring at our screens for hours, only to feel our brains turning to mush and our nerves going haywire. Did you get anything done? No? Do you feel uninspired? Still? Fear not, my lovelies! I've thought up 23 fabulous ways to help you break free from the screen and kiss that anxiety goodbye. Let's dive in!


1. Get Your Body Moving: Shake it out with a dance party in your living room or go for a brisk walk. Yoga Wake Up is my families' favorite way to wake up our bodies! Movement is magic for your mood. Get moving first thing!


2. Dive into a Book: Swap your screen for some pages. Whether it's a juicy novel or an inspiring self-help book, reading is a great escape. I've even read books when I couldn't be still to meditate. This helps and is a similar frequency for your brain.


3. Journal Your Thoughts: Grab a pen and let your thoughts flow. It's a wonderful way to declutter your mind.


4. Meditate: Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Meditation can work wonders in calming your anxious mind. If you're too anxious, try reading a book instead.


5. Try Yoga: Stretch away your stress with some soothing yoga poses. Namaste!


6. Create Art: Unleash your inner artist. Paint, draw, or doodle to express yourself creatively.


7. Take a Bubble Bath: Light some candles, add some bubbles, and soak away your worries. Your skin is your largest organ, we must remember to care for it.


8. Cook or Bake: Whip up a delicious meal or bake some treats. The process can be therapeutic, and the results are tasty!


9. Go for a Nature Walk: Connect with nature and breathe in some fresh air. It's an instant mood booster.


10. Listen to Music: Put on your favorite tunes and let the music lift your spirits.


11. Practice Gratitude: Write down a few things you're thankful for. Gratitude brings positivity to the forefront.


12. Do a Puzzle: Engage your brain in a different way with a jigsaw or crossword puzzle.


13. Declutter a Space: Clear out a drawer or organize a shelf. A tidy space can lead to a clearer mind.


14. Call a Friend: Have a good old-fashioned phone chat with a friend. Connection is key to feeling grounded.


15. Take a Nap: Sometimes, a quick power nap is all you need to reset.


16. Try Aromatherapy: Light a scented candle or use essential oils to create a calming atmosphere.


17. Have a Cup of Herbal Tea: Sip on some chamomile or peppermint tea to soothe your nerves.


18. Practice Deep Breathing: Focus on your breath and take slow, deep breaths to calm your body and mind.


19. Do Some Gardening: Get your hands dirty and connect with the earth. Gardening can be incredibly grounding.


20. Take a Boat Ride: If you live near a park that has a lake, there are chances that they rent out boats. This can be a fun way to spend a few hours in your day.


21. Explore a New Hobby: Take up knitting, pottery, or any other hobby that sparks your interest.


22. Take a Digital Detox: Set aside some screen-free time each day to disconnect and recharge.


23. Laugh: Watch a comedy, read a funny book, or chat with a friend who always makes you giggle. Laughter is the best medicine.


Now, the hardest thing to do is not record yourself doing any of these 23 fabulous things. I'm sure that you'll soon embrace the joy of living screen free soon enough. Remember, it's all about balance. So go ahead, unplug, unwind, and unleash your fabulous self!
