I went into this assuming I’d likely be tasting wine on camera and guessed they wanted feedback for a new wine application. Neither were true, and the experience was eye opening.
Employees from Wente Vineyards asked a series of questions, including how I spend my time, my screen time behavior and what I would do if I had more time in the day.
On average, I was spending about 3 hours a day on my phone checking social media, email, text messages and the news. That adds up to 98 hours a month, 53 days per year, or 7 years in a lifetime.
It really made me reflect on how I choose to spend my time. I can never get these early years back from my son's life, and I was wasting them staring into the abyss of a screen. Perhaps I drank the Kool-Aid, but I have tried to be more intentional about putting my phone down and being present.
spend nearly 2 hours on social media every day. That adds up to 5 years and 5 months over a lifetime.
check email about 36 times an hour.
spend more time on social media than socializing, eating, drinking, bathing, shaving, dressing and styling hair… combined.
spend 3x more time on social media than we do socializing in person.
