Did you know that if you get under seven hours of sleep per night you are considered sleep deprived? If not, you’re not alone. Over two-thirds of people fall into this category, making it a widely spread condition affecting adults worldwide. It turns out that our culture’s obsession with electronics could be partly to blame - your cellphone, laptop or tablet could be one of the culprits causing you to have those restless nights.
The social aspect of these devices are partly to blame, with many people constantly checking their social media account, email, electronic news, or any other ‘app’ you can think of. Many people don’t turn off their devices during the night which certainly can disturb your rest if they ring or vibrate, but more so to blame is the scientific side of these electronics.
