Managing Screen Time

“Not all screen time is bad, but it matters how much time we’re spending and what we’re gaining from the time.” - Ariene Pellicane

Charvi and Keerthi host a fascinating program on how to manage screen time. Charvi states that in an era where our lives unfold increasingly on screens, the concept of "screentime" has become a ubiquitous and often debated facet of modern existence. As we navigate this digital age, understanding screentime is not just a matter of tracking minutes spent on devices; it's about unraveling the intricate tapestry of human behavior, societal norms, and the impact of technology on our well-being. Keerthi concludes that managing screen time is an epic adventure, a quest to reclaim lost minutes and conquer the digital dragons that threaten our productivity. Armed with the App-etizer, the Notification Hydra slayer, and the Unplug Amulet, you shall emerge victorious in this battle for time. Reporter Rory joins the conversation with his segment, The Breakdown to discuss how its challenging to manage social media when a student is forced to be on screen daily for schoolwork. Social media has affected young adults in many ways, and while it does offer more connectivity, it can lead to many mental and physical issues, such as problems with sleep as well as engaging in less physical activity, and harm the development of the brain indirectly or directly if teens use technology too much in place of real-life experience. He advocates asking parents for help in limiting the usage. For example, eliminate devices during mealtimes and sleep. Reporter of A.I. and Us, Kevin talks about how A.I. can help manage screen time and warns about the dangers of looking at a screen for too long as the blue light can damage eyes. A.I. can warn when screen time has gotten excessive on its own. A.I. can monitor health.  A.I. can leverage gamification principles to make the process of managing screen time engaging and rewarding. If a particular approach to screen management proves ineffective for an individual, A.I. candynamically adjust its interventions. This adaptability ensures that solutions are not one-size-fits-all but are personalized to meet the unique needs and preferences of each user. A.I. becomes your own personal virtual doctor, making sure that you get whatever works for you.

However you do it, make sure to limit your screen usage for improved health and socialization.
