Digital Distraction: Living in the Screen Age

This is the first time in history where we have had several generations raised on digital screen technologies and the Internet. The average youth in America spends approximately 6-7 hours a day on screens—not including work or school. About 80+ percent of our screen time is for entertainment, distraction or simply to avoid boredom; almost 1/3 of our 24-hour day is spent staring at a screen and that means that over 7 years of our lives are consumed by digital distraction, and with little to show for this enormous time investment. Since 2010/2011, something has changed in our adolescents—they are lonelier, feel more left out and disenfranchised and have higher levels of depression.
