Technology Use Before Bed Linked with Increased Stress

Posted on June 1, 2013

Using technology before bed may be stressing us out, preliminary results from a new study suggest.

In the study, people who surfed the web or sent a text message within two hours of going to bed reported higher levels of stress than those who didn't engage in these behaviors.

However, the link was not seen with all forms of technology: neither emailing nor watching TV before bed was linked with greater stress.

Behaviors that did not involve technology, including exercise and reading, were also not linked with stress levels.

The findings add to a growing body of research linking technology use to stress.
