Unplugging from Social Media on the Road

How much time do you spend on social media, and do you really unplug when you’re on vacation? Surveys show people spend an average of two hours and 22 minutes per day on social networking and messaging platforms. And that figure doesn’t account for additional screen time on email, videos and working while on vacation. Instead of letting precious travel time slip by, commit to unplug from social media on your next vacation, and savor the moment. Here are some ideas to get a handle on your social media consumption and still have a pleasant trip without white knuckling it through screen time withdraw.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
