With more and more mobile devices on the market it is easy and tempting to stay connected 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but it is also very important to know how and when to disconnect.
This is a good question and varies from person to person with different impacts. It’s important to be aware of how your time online may be affecting your friendships, your family and your schoolwork, especially if it’s keeping you up at night. If any of these areas of your life are becoming problematic then it is likely that you need to cut back in the amount of time you spend online.
Spending excessive amounts of time online can have significant impacts on your health, family and social life and on your academic performance at school.
