How Is 'Too Digital' Unhealthy?
Physically UnhealthyMost adults these days spend most of their time by interacting through digital media. As they say, everything today is accessible just by a flick of a finger. We no longer need to drop by our favorite fast food chain and take some time to decide what to take home for dinner. We just head straight home and rely on the services of what this digital technology has to offer. It is very convenient especially if we just came from long hours of work. Yes, this is the privilege that we have to take advantage to reward ourselves at the end of the day but how is this physically affecting our health? While science has a lot to say about this, let's just get into the obvious details. We no longer fall in line. We often take short distance walks. Whatever physical activity it used to require is no longer there. It made us physically inactive, but we don't realize it till we find ourselves catching our breath from sudden movements in a short period of time. That is just one example but the list goes on.
Emotionally UnhealthyIt was without a doubt exciting and overwhelming when we first experienced sending greetings with images via chat applications or through email. There are millions to choose from that would be applicable for different occasions. Receiving greetings via chat using fancy images or GIF seems is now very common. But does it feel the same way nowadays? It's true that it is the thought that counts, but don't you miss getting actual greeting cards? Greeting cards that are personally hand-written by the sender? Don't you miss that emotional attachment that it leaves you as you hold and read a physical letter? It's slightly sad to see how digital technology changed that, but it is not too late for sure. Nothing is wrong about taking advantage of what we can do with modern technology to ease our daily lives. We deserve convenience after long hours of stressing ourselves at work. What digital apps can provide and deliver for sure are amusing and useful. However, we must not forget about how using too much of it affects our mind and body. We have to identify the good and the bad in the benefits that we are getting from digital technology ourselves.

We hired a VA because we needed help on recruiting for agents and I am very satisfied with my Virtual Assistant. The experience with Virtudesk is really good and I am really really happy.
One of the reasons why we hire a Virtual Assistant is because a VA can’t walk out my door and take my business. Second, the cost value and the third is, we just had a super well qualified hardworking admin – I am very satisfied with my VA. We are also constantly getting follow-ups to ensure that we are very satisfied.
