So. Any exciting plans for this weekend? I bet you’re looking forward to spending some time with your family, or catching up with friends. Maybe there’s a new recipe or restaurant you’ve wanted to try. And, of course, there are those countless minutes of checking your work email.
Wait. What? That doesn’t sound like a relaxing way to spend the Saturday. Or Sunday. Or both.
And yet, so many of us do it. In fact, 81% of American workers say they are required to be in contact outside of working hours — that includes weekends.
The thing is, we know better. There’s plenty of research out there on the negative impact of screentime on our health, especially when it comes to our sleep cycles. But there’s even more science to support the art of unplugging, which our friends at NetCredit compiled into this helpful infographic.
So have a look. And then — please — disconnect for the weekend.
