Your Daily Screen Time?

Recommended Posts

What is you daily screen time? This includes tv, phones and everything else.

 

Mine is around 4 to 5 hours although I am working on reducing this as much as I can.

I am a computer programmer who owns a website. Most of my day is spent in front of a screen.

What do you do to prevent eye and hand damage?

My daily average around my phone is 4-5 hours. But some days, it can exceed 7 hours. Although, there are a few days where my screen time is literally zero.

I've only been in this role for six months to be fair.

But on off days like today I go camping or hiking or something.

I'm downtown hanging out at a brewery right now.

I know I spend quite a bit a time on my computer and on my phone, so I probably have several hours of screen time on a given day if you really add up every single moment I'm looking at a device. Both my phone and computer have become such a common part of my life that it's hard to imagine a day without using them. Even when I'm practicing my trumpet, I'm using my phone as a metronome and to record myself. :P

Does working on my laptop count? I probably spend 8+ hours on my laptop just doing work. My iPod says I average 2 hours a day on it, and my phone says 1 hour. I can live without my phone tbh, I don't use it too much.

I work 40 hours a week with computers, and my daily personally use is about 6 hours according to my phone. So 14 hours a day, on week days, which is about 100% of my time awake 😂

More time than I should have.

Pretty much all my time actually except when I'm attending class. I'm a computer engineering student so even some amount of my 9 to 5 is spent in front of a computer. Otherwise I'm always using a phone or my laptop.

 

Even though getting a phone has made my life simpler, I sometimes wish I never had it because now I can't survive without external stimulation. I enjoyed pre-phone days because I used to think more deeply about stuff.

Wow know I feel a lot better about my screen time :P

People on DCC are hardcore. I am in the top two people with the fastest typing speed in my class but am definitely on the lower end of the spectrum here, too.

A lot of us are also university students that do a lot of classwork on a laptop. I saw this meme about university the other day that's so accurate.

I definitely agree with this. We've come to rely on our phones and computers so much that it seems inconceivable to imagine life without them.

Like 7/8 hours, it varies.. sometimes more sometimes less..

(I was just on FaceTime for 3 hours 🤪) Anyways, this time also includes watching TV shows/ YouTube and my work) 

I’ve cut down going on my phone throughout the day (as this was one of my New Years resolutions), I just go on my laptop a lot because of uni work. I prefer everything typed up and.....this semester I have 3 assignments (so my screen time will probably increase because of this)

at least 8 or more. most of my classes through the week are back to back (they're 3 hours long each) so i end up sitting in front of a screen for 6 hours a day, give or take. plus whatever time i spend on my phone/laptop.

That's true. On days when I can take my phone to school my screen time on my phone easily extends to 7 hours and I don't even need to use it

Since everyone’s quarantining, I think it’d be interesting to see everyone’s screen on time now.

My daily average in the last week is 8 hours. Bruh. But to be fair most of the time I keep my phone’s screen on even when I’m working on my laptop. Not to make excuses though 😛

Wait till you get a load of this. My average screen time is 3 hours 42 minutes per day and it's 12% down from last week. My weekly total, however.... 25 hours and 59 minutes. 12 hours and 37 minutes coming from Instagram and 7 hours 17 minutes from TikTok. I'm ashamed to say it got worse during this pandemic but before that, I used to average 20 minutes per day.

I would say lately my daily screen time is like maybe like 3 to 4 hours at most. I rarely get on my phone and I'm not a huge tv person.
