According to a report, the average time for spending on screen is 5.5 hours a day. Some of the Americans even made their own rules before sleeping that they will avoid the blue light on screens. People now feel that spending time with family and friends and doing their favorite stuff such as cooking, listen to music give them more satisfaction.
