    Default What seems like a reasonable amount of screen time, how do you decide?

    I mean for adults or children but I've been thinking about it lately, too much screen time for instance if you dont go out of the house that day or what? By screen time I mean TV, DVD, internetz, games, the lot.
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    I think, since I'm terribly addicted to the internet, the most feasible option is to go two hours on, four hours off, four hours on, one hour off, and be on it the rest of the night before bed.

    So, like. . . 24-8-5= 11 hours.

    Wait, that's still no good.


    Anyways, I think the most ideal would be to split it 60/40 - 60 percent of your waking hours doing other things, 40 percent of your waking hours in front of a screen.

    Yeah, it's still unhealthy, but at least it's more ideal.
