Medical portals

Do you want to find the nearest dentist office in Denver? This is a way to make, change, or cancel appointments. Review details of your medical history. Ask questions, and request refills on medication.

Google reviews

Do you want to read reviews and manage appointments? Do you need a restaurant, cafe, or a family hotel? All of these things are available to you with a simple google search. You no longer have to take your chances. You can find the best by “experience” from your phone or computer.

Social media

Social media is not just a place where you go to see if your sister is still up at 1:00 in the morning and wants to chat. Social media has grown up. This is a place where you can meet people from all walks of life. Here you will find groups that are dealing with the same issues you are. There are so many online support groups: cancer support groups, addiction support groups, grief sites, and spiritual groups. Social media is a great place to find support, encouragement, and friendship. It is a place to laugh and cry. This is one of the best ways to release stress, and get support.

Online everything

In modern society, you can do your shopping, banking, bill paying, and education online. You can request a service call, upgrade your cell phone plan, and look up a doggy daycare for your vacation plans. You can research a term paper or complete your budget report for the office. There is very little you cannot do online. The tools are there. You simply have to create a new normal so that you utilize them.

Communication

We are so used to seeing email and advertising that we give it little thought. However, when we are trying to address a problem, make a payment arrangement, make a sale, or sign-up our kids for football, we find that email and texting are invaluable. The days of snail mail are virtually gone. But, that does not mean that we do not need to have things in writing. An electronic proof of purchase, receipt, and inquiry goes a long way if there is a future misunderstanding,

The modern computer programs allow us to communicate, follow-up, keep records, and prove our case in the event of a problem. It is a lot less stressful to write an email than to have a telephone conversation that can become heated. Take full advantage of electronic communication to reduce the stress in your life.

Conclusion

We live in the digital age. We see the results of technology every day. However, we do not always dig deeper and take full advantage of the tools that are right in front of us. Taking the time to learn is well worth the effort. You will have a happier and less stressful family life.
