How much time do you spend staring at screens in a day? It's probably more often than you think. Between checking Facebook on your phone, working on your computer and watching TV, the time really adds up. In fact, if you're like the people in this recent study, you could even spend more time staring at your phone than you do sleeping.

A recent report from tech expert and venture capitalist Mary Meeker indicates we spend about 7.41 hours in front of screens every day! That's way more than the amount of sleep we're getting each night.

The average American gets about 6 hours 31 minutes of sleep on a work night, according to a 2013 poll from the National Sleep Foundation. If you're feeling groggy every morning, you could probably benefit from putting away the gadgets and computers and devoting a little extra time to counting sheep.
