Are Slow Computers Bad for Us

During the past month, 24% of adults in the United States did not participate in physical activities.  The most common reason given for this was a lack of free time.  Exercise is important, but where can you find the extra minutes in the day?  You’ll be happy to know you don’t have to give up any television or social media time; a simple upgrade in technology will save the average American 16 minutes per day.  That’s 4.1 days per year you can reclaim and spend on more healthful pursuits.

The average American wastes 16 minutes per day waiting on slow computers.  Upgrading technology can help you repurpose that time for more exercise (The US Dept. of Health and Human Services recommends a minimum of 75 minutes per week), a full night of sleep, or time to plan and cook a healthy meal.  In short, upgrade your technology to upgrade your health!
