    So much of our day is dominated by screens. We wake up to our phone, use our phone as a GPS, work from a computer, and relax by watching TV. This way of life is the norm now. But do you think quality of life would improve without all of these screens? And do you feel that your life is dominated by screens and that they control most of your day? These are important questions to address because there could be long term health effects of using screens for a large portion of your say. I think that my life quality would probably be improved if I stopped using screens more often. I think my mood would improve, but unfortunately using screens is sometimes a necessity.

    Yes, reducing your screen usage will have a big impact to your life. People nowadays don't live how we should suppose to be. We should get out of our house more often, do things under the sun and seek for survival. The hunter-gathering attitude of people is gone because of technologies and other gadgets so people nowadays just spend time on the screens for prolonged period of time which negatively impacts their quality of life. With screen usage for hours, we are forbidden to seek what we should really do according to our human nature and by minimizing screen usage, it will help us improve our quality of life in so many ways like good communication, less worries and anxieties, longer and deeper sleep and more focus.

    Oh absolutely! That's what I wanted. I want to go out with friends, explore places where I can barely touch my phone and open the screen.

    It's just hard to remove the screen from me. Like I'm working in the office and face my computer screen all day, check my phone and play games in vacant times, even before going to bed. The hours that I'm not facing the screen are only during sleep.

    I badly needed to go out and spend time talking to people than just staring at my phone. It actually gives me problems already, like eye strain, blurriness, headaches.

    I believe that my life would be improved if there will be less screen time. That means more personal talking with friends, more appreciation to the things around, more interaction. For me, that should life be spent.

    Yes I do. There comes a time when we need to log and interact with the outside word. We should meet and establish real relationships with people instead of just typing online. If you stay online too long, you might become a loner. That is never good.

    Will your life get better with less time on digital screens? The answer is, definitely yes!
    This is very true especially to those living in the cities whereas engaging in the information technology (IT) world has been a part of the regular routine, regardless of it being in front of the computer or the mobile phone, surfing the net or getting busy in the social media.
    The truth is, we are now in the advanced age of technology and living without gadgets seems to be insane. That means having a screen "in your face" is somehow inevitable.

    Lucky on those people living in the rural areas with a plain, simple way of living. Free from stress and free from radiation. More importantly, they have plenty of quality time for their families and friends, and that's what you call "life".

    On the other hand, this is contrary to what we get in living an urban life. Not only that we might get illnesses or just poor health, we will also lose the chance to be a "person" to others, if not to our family and friends. In some worse cases, the psychological state of mind is even affected.

    The question though is, do we have an option? Well, if the question is whether can we escape this way of living? The sad answer is no. But if the question is, "do we have a choice?" The answer is yes.
    Precisely there is something that we can do. The keyword is balance. We must have enough time on all aspects in life. Physical, mental, spiritual, sociological, and digital.

    I believe that our lives will be improved by minimizing our screen usage. Screen usage has negative impacts on our health which is not common few decades ago like laziness, procrastination, excessive use of pornography and many more to mention. I imagine life without internet. People will go out of their houses and talk to other people verbally and they can talk without the use of internet. People will be more productive and people will have more focus. People will also live a glorious and meaningful life by going outside of their houses and live the best our of their lives which is not common nowadays because we choose to live an easy life by just staying indoors and play on the screen for long periods of time.

    Life would be improved with less screen time but it would totally depend on the person. If you spend your time arguing with other people online, posting nonsense, just anything that is not productive, I think you are wasting your time but if you use screen time to be productive, like working from home and studying it's okay I think you just have to find the balance between using your gadgets.
