Technology Making You Lose Sleep?

Could using playing Angry Birds, watching CSI or surfing the web before bed really cause you to lose sleep? The National Sleep Foundation seem to think so:

“Americans report very active technology use in the hour before trying to sleep. Almost everyone surveyed, 95%, uses some type of electronics like a television, computer, video game or cell phone at least a few nights a week within the hour before bed. However, baby boomers (46-64 year olds), generation X’ers (30-45 year olds), generation Y’ers (19-29 year olds) and generation Z’ers (13-18 year olds) report very different technology preferences.”

Read the rest of the report by the National Sleep Foundation (USA based)  here.

Of course there can be a number of different reasons for sleepless nights but over stimulating your brain before you hit the sack cant help.

DigitalSilence 3days without technology could help you break the cycle of technology use and help you regain control of your night!
