How Many Hours A Day Do You Spend On Your Smartphone?
It’s more challenging than you probably originally thought! The average individual spends around 3.6 hours a day on their phone. If the numbers displayed teens only, that number would be even higher. This data purely reflects cell phone usage, it does not include all the other screens that we interact with on a daily basis. If your phone has become a “time stealer”, and has distracted you from those around you, here are some ideas that may help you be more present.
In a technology-driven society, it has become the expectation to answer the text, email or message immediately. The more of us that choose to priortize family and friends over our phones in 2019, the sooner that culture can shift. Make it your resolution to unplug and engage with the people you love.
