Over half of Americans say they spend more time in front of a screen outside of school and work purposes because of the pandemic. In a study conducted by The Harris Poll of more than 1,000 adults, people now spend an average of 6.3 hours a day in front of screens outside of work or school. And shockingly, almost one-third claim they have become addicted to being online as a result of the pandemic. For some adults, increased screen time has helped them connect to others. But almost 4 in 10 claim the use of devices has made them less physically active, and 1 in 5 say it has hurt their mental health.
