We Are Spending a Significant Chunk of Our Lives on Our Phones
Every time this survey comes out it seems to be significantly higher than the last. Well, the newest survey is out and it will blow your mind to see how often we are staring at our smart devices. Vision Direct says the average person spends 276 minutes per day, which adds up to 70 days per year, on their phone. When you throw in the work computer, TV, etc, we spend more than half of the day staring at said screens - 13 hours per day OR 44 years of our life. Yikes!
