Here’s a chart that’s both surprising and unsurprising.
People in the United States rarely unplug from gadgets according to a survey by CivicScience. As you can see, 43% of those polled say they never unplug. And 17% say a few times a year.
CivicScience seems to have cast a very wide net for its definition of “unplug” with TV, internet, smartphones, etc. counting.
For what it’s worth, I would say I never unplug entirely. I always check the internet even when I’m on vacation. I enjoy it. I like seeing what’s going on in the world. I don’t check email as much, but that’s about it. It doesn’t stress me out too much, unless I see the wrong email.
Anyway, what about you? Do you unplug, do you feel like you need to, or even want to?
