Free Time or Screen Time.

It would seem that we are having less free time these days and more screen time.

At first I questioned this as surely time on the computer equates to time spent in front of the television - but it would seem not as interestingly this article I had from a twitter feed points out that time in front of computer screens "robs us of stopping cues" meaning we have no obvious signals to tell us to get away from the screens and do something else.

I know the feeling Roll eyes

Re: Free Time or Screen Time.

we could always set our own "stopping cues" though.
i know that whenever i see a thread started by you that it's time to walk away from the computer/laptop/phone Smiley
