Smartphone’s Sleep Interference and Mental Health

Your smartphone habit may be doing more than harming your relationships — it could be damaging your sleep and ultimately triggering depression and anxiety. We all know how important sleep is for us to function properly. So it comes as no surprise to find that some people may decide to try alternative products like cannabis strain, similar to ones found on sites like buymyweedonline candy (as some strains are said to have calming properties), in the hopes of getting a good night’s sleep.

A growing body of research finds that smartphone users have sleep problems that interfere with their daily functioning.

“We know that young people and older people are on some kind of screen before bedtime, even within the last 30 or 60 minutes before going to sleep,” said Dr. Shalini Paruthi, the director of the Pediatric Sleep and Research Center at Saint Louis University.

“Everybody has a wakeup alarm, but it may be equally important to set a bedtime alarm,” Paruthi continued. “That way it gives ourselves a signal: ‘Okay, time to put this away. Time to start my bedtime routine.'”

One study, published in 2014, found an association between smartphone use after 9 p.m. and decreased sleep quantity. Its researchers surveyed 82 upper-level managers and found that those who slept less felt depleted in the morning and were less engaged at work the next day.
