Well, it’s official!!! It’s official!! Smartphones are keeping people from getting a good night’s sleep.
650 people took part in an online study; they downloaded an app that tracked their smartphone screen time. It was determined that the average person spends 38.4 hours on their smartphones per month and about 29 minutes each day.
The study also determined that the more time they spent on the smartphones, the less likely that that person would get a night’s sleep.
Why that happens wasn’t clear. The cause could either be that the light from the phone makes it harder to doze off or the content from the smartphone might be stressing out the user; or it might be that people who have trouble sleeping turn to their smartphones.
