In a study released last week states that people are losing sleep due to technology.

The study states that light-emitting screens are becoming more and more commonly used during the night time, most notably in the hour before people go to sleep. The National Sleep Foundation says that the increase in device usage before bedtime is causing people to lose sleep and suffer from insomnia. In their study 43% of people aged 13 to 64 felt that they aren’t getting enough sleep during the work week.

The study reveals that older people are more inclined to watch television before bed as their tech-vice while younger people tend to stay up playing games, on their phones or surfing the internet.
