Prince Harry Warns Young People That Mobile Phones Affect Mental Health

Take a mental break and put down your phones, Prince Henry of Wales recently urged young people. He said he recently read that young people check their phones at least 150 times per day!

The Prince is a champion of mental health issues and believes more needs to be done to equip young people to deal with the modern world.  He believes that everyone would be “more effective and efficient” if they took more time to simply think.

According to a Gallup poll conducted back in 2012, by their own admission, many young Americans, aged 18 to 29, say they spend too much time using the Internet (59%), their cell phones or smartphones (58%), and social media sites such as Facebook (48%).

It's probably worse since the poll was taken...and not only for young adults!
