To everyone who owns a smartphone, we have two words for you: Look up.
In our tech-obsessed culture, it's super easy to get wrapped up in your glowing screen instead of what's right in front of you. (Trust us, you're not the only one.) But you could be missing out on some really great opportunities and a few health perks.
Research shows that over-engagement with social media could cause anxiety and other mental health risks. Additionally, too much tech can wreck your sleep and may be linked to lower physical activity.
But unplugging is a lot easier said than done (what else are you supposed to do on your commute?). Enter these handy suggestions in the video above. The illustrations break down a few activities you could be doing rather than fixating your eyes on your screen.
There's nothing better than fully experiencing the world around you... IRL.
