Too Much Screen Time?

My phone has a feature call “screen time.”  It tracks how much time I spent on my phone every day.  Nifty metric especially for people who are analytical and interested in that kinds of data. But the thing is that my phone is not the only screen I interact.

I have multiple devices other than my phone.  Computer, tablet, television, etc.  Some I have more than one of each.  What is the real picture on how much I spent staring at flat screens has take into account of all my devices. More than just what my phone tracks.

Should I be worried?  Not at all, if you ask me.

Of course overindulgence is not good.  But screen time to me is no different from time spent on reading, blogging, exercising, sleeping or anything else.  It is a subset of how I spent my time.  At the end of the day, if I am productive, happy, or not will depend how I invest my time.

I am free to adjust depend on the situation.  An occasional binge watching will certainly skew the metric but does no real harm. So why not?

How do you feel about the “screen time”?
