How are your feelings? Are you restless or stressed?
To what extent can a lot of information such as news, a lot of television or screen time subconsciously lead to stress, restlessness or even illness?
Stress can lead to a variety of physical and mental illnesses.
When we are stressed, our body activates the sympathetic nervous system and releases stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. This physiological state can have a negative impact on our body if maintained over a long period of time.
Prolonged stress can lead to compromised immune systems, which can increase susceptibility to infections. In addition, stress can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, digestive problems, headaches, and trouble sleeping. It can also increase the risk of mental disorders like depression and anxiety.
It is important to note that stress is not always the sole cause of these disorders. Many factors play a role in the development of diseases. Nevertheless, it is important to minimize stress and learn stress management strategies to reduce the risk of stress-related illnesses.
In today's world, we are constantly surrounded by a deluge of information. From news and social media feeds to TV shows and video games, we have access to an endless amount of content that can keep us engaged and entertained. But while all of this information may seem harmless at first glance, it can actually subconsciously lead to stress and restlessness.
Here are some reasons why too much information can weigh on us:
Our brain is designed to process and filter information. However, when we receive too much information at once, our brain can become overwhelmed and overstimulated. This can lead to stress and anxiety as our brain is unable to handle the overload.
- Negative News
Most news reports focus on negative events and problems. Regularly hearing or seeing negative news can make us feel anxious and worried, which can lead to stress and restlessness.
- FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out)
In a world where we're constantly bombarded with social media updates and news, it can be easy to feel like we're missing out if we don't keep ourselves constantly updated. This can lead to a fear of missing out (FOMO), which drives us to constantly check our phones and stay current. However, this can ultimately overwhelm us and lead to stress.
- restrictions on movement
When we spend a lot of time in front of screens, we spend less time moving and being physically active. This can lead to a lack of physical activity and an increase in stress hormones that can weigh us down.
- sleep disorders
Spending a lot of time in front of screens can affect our sleep quality. The blue light emitted by screens can disrupt the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep. This can lead to disrupted sleep, which can make us feel tired and stressed the next day.
Overall, too much information, whether it's from the news, TV, or screen time, can subconsciously lead to stress and restlessness.
How can you actively protect yourself from or get this problem under control?
It's important to be aware of how much time we spend in front of screens , limit negative messages, and make sure we're getting enough exercise and sleep. By adopting healthy habits, we can protect ourselves from the burden of information overload and increase our well-being.

With information as medicine in chronic health by Dipl. Ing. (bio-med) Jutta Suffner
Nowadays, our senses are flooded with information from all kinds of channels. In the end, this flood of information can also damage our health. In this book you will learn everything you need to know about how to deal with yourself and those around you in order to start your journey to chronic health.
Jutta Suffner has been drawn to medicine since she was a child. After training as a medical-technical radiology assistant, she completed a degree in biomedicine and researched neurodegenerative diseases using magnetic resonance imaging in Canada. In Europe, the author worked for a world-renowned company in the field of ultrasound diagnostics for more than two decades.
Then, in her early 30s, she received a horrific diagnosis and was hospitalized for almost a year. The prospects of delayed viral myocarditis were bleak and the beginning of nearly seven years of transformation and recovery. So she started researching again and found that the attitude to life, the lifestyle and other natural products can help for a faster healing process. Additional training as an alternative practitioner and research into a natural food supplement have accompanied her to her current vision that dying healthy is possible.
