Study Shows Americans Don’t Know How To Unplug On Vacation

We take our phones everywhere, even to the bathroom (don’t shake your head, you have done it). And of course they go with us on vacation. We may even be packing the iPad and laptop. Stop!

Global tech company, Asurion, polled 200 American and found that while we claim we want to get away, we are checking our phones five times an hour or every 12 minutes while on vacation. Ten percent of those polled said they are checking their phones 20 times and hour!

The study went on to find most of us are using our phones while on our getaway as much as we would in a normal day…and that’s just crazy.

But there’s good news in all this. There are apps to help us. Wait, what? Yep, apps we can download that will lock us our of our phones or even set times for us. Check it all out here.

So, while to get ready to take your annual trip to the beach or family trip away from home, make a promise to yourself to spend less time with your phone. Trust me, you won’t miss Facebook while you lie on the beach!
