Breaking Free From The Screen: How To Limit Your Tech Time

We spend a significant amount of time looking at screens, whether it's our phone or computer.

This can have serious implications for our mental health, self-esteem, and even our physical well-being, in how it affects our eyes and arms.

Research has found that any amount beyond one hour of daily screen time can yield negative effects.

These effects include lower psychological well-being, lowered curiosity, impaired self-control, increased distractibility, difficulty making friends, increased emotional volitility, and a diminished ability to complete tasks.

Here are some tips to help you find more balance with the amount of time you spend on screens.

Set limits: Allow yourself a limited amount of time to browse the internet or use apps.

Develop hobbies: This is particularly important for those who have to use screens a lot for work.

Keep screens out of relaxation spaces: For example, avoid bringing your laptop into your bedroom.

Ditch the Screens: Plan activities and leisure time that do not involve screen time, such as outdoor activities, hanging out with friends, or going to a nice restaurant.
