How to Eat Healthy in the Climate of Information Overload
Posted on April 30, 2020
In the age of COVID-19, there is so much information we are being fed every day, and it can be overwhelming.
We are bombarded with the latest updates on the global pandemic, including the number of people infected, those who have passed, the state of the economy and the struggles unemployment, speculation on the future, and various “cures” being pushed on social media.
There is so much information during this time, and it can be hard to escape. When you turn on the news, it is all that you hear. You get on social media, and you are bombarded with trending updates and speculation.
At the end of the day, we are paralyzed with information overload that can cause anxiety, depression, stress, and a sense of feeling lost. One thing you may not realize is this overload of information is having an impact on is your nutrition.
Yes, all this information may be affecting what you eat and what you are not eating.
It’s no secret that many of us turn to food for comfort, and when we are stressed, we want to eat food that makes us feel good at that moment. We also know that this impacts our health in the long-term, and right now, we need to hold onto our health.
Now is the time we should be making sure our immune system is strong, so we are better equipped to fight off anything that comes our way.
To protect our health, we should also be limiting the amount of information we are taking in and trying to reduce stress.
Stress causes inflammation in the body, and this inflammation weakens your immune system, making you more vulnerable to disease.
With Health, Information Overload is Nothing New...
We are all feeling a bit overwhelmed with the amount of information we are taking in, but this information overload is not a new battle in fighting for better health.
Think back to the time when you first decided to reclaim your health?
Did you know where to start, or did you feel like there was so much information that it became difficult to know what to do?
For so many people, when they first start trying to better their nutrition and eat healthy, it can be difficult to know where to start.
There is always a new fad diet telling you they’ve figured out the secret to nutrition and losing weight.
There are tons of conflicting and false information being discussed on the internet, and it can be difficult to know what is right and what isn’t.
When information becomes too overwhelming, it can cause people to feel hopeless and ultimately give up on their health goals.
Whether you are facing too much information about nutrition, or feel overwhelmed by the amount of information being presented to you about COVID-19, there are ways to get your focus back on your health.
Reduce Your Information Stress and Boost Your Immune System
It is important to stay informed, whether that means getting information on the pandemic or just staying informed about your health and what you are putting in your body.
The issue becomes where you have so much information, it becomes hard to navigate what that information is or when it becomes so much that it begins to impact your life in a negative way.
If you are consumed by too much information and it is causing stress in your life, your nutrition and your health and immune system are going to suffer.
Here are ways you can prevent information overload and refocus on your nutrition;
ᐅ Limit Your Intake
Limiting your exposure to the amount of information you are taking in can help eliminate the feeling of information overload.
Right now, you may be trying to keep up with the latest updates of the pandemic, and it is important to know what is going on. However, checking into the news and reading about the pandemic all day leads to information overload. This creates more stress, and that stress impacts our overall health and leads to inflammation building up in the body.
Balance your intake of information with things you enjoy doing, or reading about. You can stay informed by giving yourself 10 minutes every morning to catch up on the latest information. Once you are done, put it aside and spend the rest of the day on things you enjoy.
Doing this will cut down on your stress and the feeling of being overwhelmed, allowing you to refocus your attention on staying healthy.
If your information overload comes from all the available information associated with staying healthy, limiting your intake can also help stick to a new, healthier plan.
If you are just starting on your health journey, don’t feel like you need to change your entire diet at once. Change a few things at a time and allow yourself to develop better habits.
For example, your first step should be to incorporate more whole foods and organic fruits and vegetables into your diet. Detox Organics Daily Superfoods is a great first step to help balance out your diet with something chocolatey and tasty.
ᐅ Listen to the Experts
When it comes to your health, always be sure you are listening to the experts.
If you’ve been on social media, you may have seen all the strange COVID-19 “cures” being pushed by influencers. It seems like every week, there is a new “miracle” cure, including drinking whiskey, or taking cocaine. Almost every week, there seems to be a new online treatment going around.
This is not new to the health community as influencers and others online push skinny teas and fad diets that promise health and weight loss, but in reality, do more harm than good.
Try limiting your information to just what the experts say; this way, you can cut out the middleman and know what advice to follow. This is especially important when it comes to your health.
For example, there are people out there that tell us that you can eat healthy with any food, as long as it “fits your calories.” However, we know that processed food isn’t good for you, even if it “fits your calories.”
ᐅ Eat Whole Foods
Too much information can lead to anxiety and emotional distress, which then leads us to want to eat foods we know we shouldn’t.
Processed foods are full of ingredients designed to make us feel good and trigger the reward center of our brain. However, processed foods lack nutrition and are full of ingredients that may actually harm your health.
Above all, you should make sure your diet is full of whole foods, and by limiting the amount of processed food in your home, you will be more likely to stick to a nutritional diet.
ᐅ Practice Mindfulness & Gratitude
If you are feeling stressed about the amount of information you are taking in, take some time to practice mindfulness and remind yourself of the things in your life that you have to be thankful for.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it stress, uncertainty, and hardships on all different levels. When you get up in the morning, remind yourself of things you have right now that you can be grateful for. Grab your journal and make a list.
Ask yourself, how are you able to serve those around you and in your community that may be less fortunate? In these uncertain times, how can you bring light into someone else’s life? Doing so will bring light into your life, ease your stress, and help you focus on your own health.
