When is the last time you ate a meal without watching TV, checking your phone . . . or both?
If your answer is “Um, I can’t remember” . . . you’re not alone. According to a new survey, 88% of people now eat most of their meals in front of a screen.
The average person says they have just five screen-free meals a week.
The survey also found the top five things we do on our phones during a meal are: Read email . . . scroll through social media . . . watch YouTube . . . do stuff for work . . . and watch a TV show or movie on a streaming app.
Oh, and 83% of people say they’ve spent so long trying to decide what to watch their food got cold.
