A recent poll from the National Sleep Foundation found a correlation between the use of technology use in the bedroom and poor sleep. The findings showed that about 39% of Americans are using cell phones in their bedrooms in the hour before trying to go to sleep. 72% of these are teenagers between 13 and 18 years old. Those who texted in the hour before going to sleep said they were less likely to get a good night’s sleep, were more likely to drive drowsy, and were more likely to wake up feeling un-refreshed.
While cell phones and computers can increase productivity, it may be more conducive of good sleep to turn them off in the hour before bed and do some relaxing reading, take a bath, or other calming activity to unwind.
