As technology continues to take over the world, one invention at a time, people have become more reliant on these devices. This being the case, many spend a huge duration of their day staring at one of the many screens that are providing them with an endless amount of information at the tip of their fingers. As great as this seems, it has actually affected the general population without many realizing it.
Take a look back on the day or even week we just went through and think about the amount of time you spent truly relaxing. In this case, relaxing consists of laying at the pool or sitting in bed without looking at an electronic device. Now, the likelihood of one saying they did either of those activities without a phone in hand is low. According to Mirror.com, millennials only relax for less than 10 hours a week with some not relaxing at all.
With this being the case, it is important that we take these statistics and use it as a learning process. Relaxing is vital to one’s mental health. It allows a person to take a break from the world and focus on themselves without being mentally compared to a social media influencer.
Seeing this as a prominent issue, we believe it is best to take a minute for ourselves. In essence, take on the true meaning of relaxation without a device being involved.
