Hardly a day goes by...if not an hour or even a minute...that folks aren’t looking at some sort of screen, and now a new survey reveals just how bad it’s gotten.
A new UK poll, which could easily translate here, finds:
- The average adult will spend a total of 34 years looking at screens.
- That means 4,866 hours a year - or 301,733 hours - over an average lifetime of 62 years will be spent looking at phones, TVs, laptops and more.
- That’s more than 13 hours a day spent on screens, including:
- Three and a half hours a day looking at TV
- At least four hours in front of a laptop
- Two hours and 25 minute staring at their phones
- An hour and 39 minutes on a tablet.
- Not to mention time on e-Readers and gaming devices.
- And while those numbers may seem like a lot, less than 10% find these numbers surprising, and only 19% are concerned by them.
- Sadly, folks say half the time they are on these screens they aren’t being productive.
- Still, 64% wouldn’t be able to live without their screen time, especially now.
- 17% actually feel anxious away from their phone for too long.
