45% of Americans try to unplug once a week or more (chart)

Sending 1,000 messages a day. Sleeping with a smartphone under the pillow. Notifications turned on 24/7. Waking up a couple of times during the night just to check out what’s new on Twitter.

We are all getting addicted to the digital beast. Being aware this is harmful is simply not enough.

Statista has released an interesting chart that shows how Americans try to control their online activity. It’s based on a report from the Harris Poll.

There is hope. Two-thirds of Americans ever attempt to unplug from their cell phone, email, or television. 45% claim they try to do it once a week or more. 16% try to unplug every day.
