Research by wearesocial.com from January 2020 shows Australians are significant users of the web, spending on average nearly 40 hours per week online with 1 in 3 minutes spent on social media. Now, with remote working being the ‘new normal’, online hours are significantly higher.
Being connected continuously:
• Reduces the amount of time we spend connecting with our significant others face-to-face;
• Overstimulates the brain and zaps focus and productivity;• Increases stress;
• Disrupts your sleep;
• Limits time spend in creative pursuits; and
• Can lead to neck and back pain due to poor posture
Unplugging is one of the best things you can do for your health and wellbeing.
