“How we spend our days is how we spend our lives.”
– Annie Dillard
According to a recent mobileinsurance.com survey, the average person spends up to 23 days a year staring at their phone screens. Almost a month per year! That's a big deal.
So I ask: Does the time on your screen each day add more value to your life? Or does it detract from it?
This week’s tip is simple – make your screen time worthwhile. Use technology to enhance your relationships and your work. If you feel yourself wasting time on it, practice shutting down.
Oftentimes we get caught up in our emails and social media. We let time slip away, although we know time it is a valuable asset. We are not alone.
If you are desperate, use technology to help your technology issue - yes, it sounds counterintuitive. Yet, there are many apps that track your usage like Moment. This is its description:
Moment is an iOS app that automatically tracks how much you use your iPhone and iPad each day. If you’re using your phone too much, you can set daily limits on yourself and be notified when you go over. You can even force yourself off your device when you’re over your limit.
We all need help sometimes. Do you have any other tips you use?
