An Escape from Agony: The 3 Days wellness program for IT professionals
India’s IT (information technology) sector is expanding rapidly every day. Many young people are drawn to the sector by the high salary scale and abundance of opportunities in addition to the expanding opportunity. The work system remains unchanged, despite significant changes occurring in the work culture. For most IT workers, stress and pressure are a constant struggle. Owing to these difficulties, the workers may experience several health problems, starting at a young age. When we think of an ordinary workday for an IT person, the majority of the day is spent sitting still in front of a screen. The sole physical and emotional respite is a cup of tea. Are pauses sufficient for a state of health and well-being? NO is the response. Let’s examine the hidden risk that faces an IT worker.
Long-term sitting has significantly more harmful aftereffects than we realise.
Prolonged sitting poses a number of health hazards that go beyond temporary pain. These risks should not be disregarded. Long durations of sitting weaken and strain our muscles, especially those in the neck and back, which can result in chronic issues, especially back pain problems. Because the spine is meant to keep its natural curve, bad posture puts pressure on it, which can lead to discomfort and long-term spinal issues. This can be cured with back pain treatment.
The metabolism suffers, leading to a reduction in the burning of calories, which exacerbates weight gain and raises the risk of metabolic diseases. Deep vein thrombosis and cardiovascular illnesses are more likely to occur when blood circulation slows down, which has an impact on the cardiovascular system. It may surprise you to learn that the brain is not immune, since memory and attention deteriorate with age. It’s critical to interrupt the cycle of inactivity to reduce these dangers. This can be achieved by taking regular pauses for movement, such as quick walks, easy stretches, or the use of ergonomic desk alternatives. Making activity a priority is crucial for maintaining general health and longevity, not just for physical well-being.
Prolonged computer screen use can lead to a number of health problems.
Prolonged usage of screens might have negative consequences on one’s physical and mental health. Long-term screen time via computers, cellphones, or other digital gadgets can cause a number of physical problems. Computer vision syndrome is a frequent complaint that includes headaches, dry eyes, and eye strain. Furthermore, extended screen time coupled with sedentary behaviour exacerbates musculoskeletal issues like back and neck pain. Screen blue light can throw off circadian rhythms, impairing sleep and making you feel exhausted. Furthermore, a sedentary lifestyle is connected to excessive screen time and is linked to a higher risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease, and other health problems. Mental stress problems are severely affected by the overuse of screens. Attending stress relaxation programs can be better for this.
Extended screen time has notable mental effects in addition to physical ones. Persistent screen time can exacerbate feelings of loneliness, anxiety, and depression, particularly when combined with social media and online activity. Decreased cognitive performance and mental weariness can result from the overload of information and stimulation. In order to reduce the negative impacts of prolonged screen time and preserve general wellbeing in an increasingly digital society, it is crucial to strike a balance between screen time and breaks, including physical activity, and practice mindful consumption of digital information. Diabetes, poor heart health, weight gain, depression, dementia, and multiple cancers can be caused.
What are the remedies for the health problems brought on by these work styles?
Ayurvedic and wellness solutions can relieve you of the health issues associated with the IT industry’s working style.
Daily Routine (Dinacharya):
Establish a daily routine that aligns with natural circadian rhythms. Wake up and go to bed at consistent times to support the body’s natural clock.
Balanced Diet (Ahara):
Follow a balanced diet that includes all six tastes (sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent). Favour whole, unprocessed foods, and stay hydrated. Incorporate warming spices like ginger and turmeric.
Consider incorporating Ayurvedic herbs into your routine, such as Ashwagandha for stress management, Brahmi for cognitive function, and Triphala for digestion.
Yoga and Meditation (Dhyana):
Practice yoga asanas and meditation regularly to reduce stress, improve flexibility, and enhance mental clarity. Simple pranayama (breathing exercises) can also be beneficial.
These are some of the best home treatments that we can do on our own.
