• Switch Off and Switch On – Why a digital detox improves happiness and well-being

    Is our use of digital devices now an unmanageable aspect of modern life?  With the average UK adult now reported to spend more time on a screen than they do asleep, many of us are questioning the effects of the “permanently switched on” on-line culture.  

    The report, by University of Leeds, found that adults in the UK spend an average of 8 hours and forty one minutes on a screen.  We check our smartphone on average 150 times a day .  We spend approximately two and a half hours a day on social media – up from one and a half hours calculated in 2012 as average.
