While researching sleep subjects this morning, I came across this article on the 11 alive website and was gobsmacked! People sending text messages while asleep… what is the world coming to?
We pay the price for staying connected with the world. The mobile phone has meant that we can receive emails and notifications at any time of night or day and now it is affecting our sleep. Sleep specialist Dr Cunningham has the last say in this article when he states, “(With smart phones), it becomes more difficult to separate our waking from our sleeping lives.”
Wenatex has always taught that for a number of reasons, all electronic devices (including mobile phones) should be kept out of the bedroom. This article provides yet another reason.
