  • 90% of 18-29 year olds sleep with their smartphones
  • 1 in 3 people would rather give up sex than their phone
  • 95% of people use the phone for something just before going to bed
  • Half of people check their phones immediately if they wake up during the night

Unfortunately, our bodies haven’t quite adapted to the change yet:

  • 63% of people aren’t getting enough sleep
  • Too much screen time reduces melatonin, the chemical that makes you sleep
  • Not sleeping makes you stressed and depressed
  • Sleeping fewer than 6 hours a night raises your heart attack risk by 50%
