"Remember, there's a whole world outside of the screen waiting to be explored."
— from Common Sense Media

How do you know you’ve spent too long on a device?

One way is to be aware of how you feel.

You might feel sensations such as:

  • Dry eyes
  • Restless legs
  • Tense shoulders and jaw
  • Stiff neck

And you might feel emotions such as:

  • Exhaustion
  • Numbness
  • Frazzled
  • Anger over losing a game

Listening to your body as well as your inner compass is one good way to know when it’s time to take a break.
