According to a recent Ofcom Study 16-24 year olds are cramming 50% more media time into as many hours. With the multi-media devices around, you're probably doing much of this on one device but are we becoming over saturated and reliant on all this media technology?
Laptops and wi-fi connections have given us the ability to roam and stay connected. Smartphones enable us to be connected 24/7 wherever we are - at home or abroad. Great for productivity and to maximise our time but know when to stop.
- Create boundaries around your time.
- Focus your attention on what's in front of you.
- Avoid having too many media distractions at any one time.
- Set time limits for how long you spend on certain media sites.
There's no harm in multi-tasking as long as more important things aren't being pushed to the sidelines as a result. Enjoy the freedom and flexibility that technology brings but don't let it rule your life.
