We check our smartphones hundreds of times a day. 53% of people say they waste at least an hour at work every day, and most of their distractions are digital. So are you distracted by digital? Addicted to tech? It’s time to stop, take a breath, and hit the reset button in a big way.
The techlash has started..
Phil White is a good person to talk to about this - he's the author of Unplugged... and provides a blueprint for using technology to meet your health and performance goals in a much smarter way.
Here's a good quote from Phil:
"In our culture many of us have come to view sleep as a time-sucking inconvenience. We’re trying to run our lives with precise efficiency like the Henry Ford assembly line, and cram as much into each day as possible. As a result, our sleep gets short shrift. A recent NPR story revealed that 37 percent of Americans don’t get adequate rest. This means that more than a third of us are wandering around like blurry eyed zombies. For athletes that’s a real problem. When you exercise you not only break down tissues that sleep repairs, but also place strain on your nervous, musculo-skeletal and many other systems that don’t work without enough shut-eye. And it’s not just the duration of sleep that’s important (it’s hard to make a case for less than seven and a half hours), but also the quality."
