Do you spend too much time on your phone?

One in third adults in UK check their message even in midnight, and admit their overuse of it has caused some problems.  Does everyone agree on this opinion?

Adam Wilson 30 asset financer

He was playing the Pokemon Go before the interview.

“Yes, I mean I spend a lot of time indeed, between 4 and 5 hours. I used the app Pokemon Go the most.

“I will not reduce my screen time because I spent so much time in front of computer and I deal with so much numbers,this is a kind of my way to escape, to get away from them. For me, it’s a good thing for my mental health rather than suffering from burning out.”

Phone using is a leisure way for her .

“I spend lots of time on my phone , because I have to do a 12-hour job so that I don’t check my screen a lot during my work time. 

” I will not reduce my screen time, the impact is good and bad, both. Because, you know, when you walk around in Cardiff, you are on your phone and you don’t see around, you don’t know what is around you. The good also be, you can touch with your friends from abroad.”

“No, my screen time isn’t very long, I would say half an hour or 45 minutes. For us, the phone use is quite purposeful. We are working for the church,and do most of our work face to face. I think it’s quite beneficial is just a tool for us to reach more people.”

“Yes!  I usually use my phone two to three hours a day. I think it’s too much. The screen time tell me that how much I use it. Sometimes, I see it 4 hours a day, I mean how?

“I use Facebook and instagram the most, and I think they all have good impact for me. I try not to share anything negtivejust because I don’t think it is a good thing to do. I just try to share positive staff on my facebook!”

He was surprised to see the screen time calculation is far more than his expectation.

“Over 7 hours, I am shocked by that. I checked news and also social media. I also use my phone for study. I will not reduce my screen time, I’m ok with that, because I don’t use it for entertainment. It’s necessary for me, I think I use it in a proper way and it’s good for me.”
