Do you find it difficult to switch off?

WHILE THE ADVENT of smartphones is to be welcomed – you have a camera where ever you go, you are always contactable and can work pretty much anywhere, there is also a downside that this also applies when you are on your holidays.

Switching off

A new survey finds that over half of people have their phone on hand to take and share their holiday snaps online (also known as rubbing it in the face of those that are stuck at home).

Having your phone on holidays also means that you can still check your work emails, still look at what everyone else is up to on Facebook and can still be relatively plugged in to what’s happening at home.

In today’s poll, we want to know: Do you take a break from your phone when on holiday?

Poll Results:

No, I need to stay connected (2459)
Yes, you need to switch off (2241)
I don't have a smart mobile (167)
