Screen exhaustion: 4 failsafe ways to deal with burnout from staring at a screen


Becca Caddy Screen Time Book

With the work from home movement at its peak, we’re spending more time online than ever before. Becca Caddy, tech journalist and author of the new book Screen Time, explains how to manage your digital presence without burning out.

Since lockdown restrictions were introduced across the UK in March 2020, many of us have spent more time in front of our screens. Stats show the average person clocked up three hours and 29 minutes online each day pre-Covid. This went up to more than four hours as of April 2020 – a number that, nearly a year on, is likely to now be even higher.

This is expected. As social distancing measures have kept us apart from friends, family and colleagues, our devices have given us much-needed ways to connect, work and relax. But relying on our phones, tablets, laptops and TV screens can have downsides.
