Ever wondered how gadgets affect our health? Do you own a smartphone, TV, laptop, or tablet? Chances are, you spend more time on your gadgets than you do on sleep. According to an Ofcom study, in a day, the average adult spends 8 hours and 41 minutes on their gadgets, compared to 8 hours and 21 minutes on sleep. This proves that most of us spend half of our waking hours staring at a screen, rather than engaging in healthy activities that benefit our bodies. While personal devices have undoubtedly improved our lives, over reliance and addiction comes with negative health consequences.
