Just How Serious Is Technology’s Effect On Our Sleep? [Infographic]
A variety of studies show device use before bed could lead to heart problems, depression and more.
In our increasingly “always-on” world – where we are often expected to be awake and ready to interact with others at hours that disrupt the pattern of an already-intensive workday – many of us have ascertained the psychological reasons why we seem to be sleeping less and enjoying a degraded quality of sleep. But did you know that our technology – especially the screens that we so dutifully take into bed with us – has adverse physical and neurological effects as well? In a National Sleep Foundation study, 63% of those surveyed said they didn’t get enough sleep. Big Brand Beds, a UK company that sells bedding online, recently devised an infographic that pulls together recent research from various sources to show exactly how much we’re getting the short shrift these days.
