Unplug for Happiness
Study after study shows that time spent in front of devices like smartphones and tablets directly impacts your happiness.

More time spent on Facebook, SnapChat, Instagram, text messaging, and other online forms of communication makes you feel sadder, less satisfied with your life, and interestingly, more lonely.

So, how do you unplug for happiness? It’s easier than you think.

Check out our blog post on the subject.
