Social networks adding to sleep woes? Why is that not surprising?
Considering that social media has given folks a new pastime to do, just like any new gadget or toy that comes out, such has become a nuisance for folks wanting proper sleep.
The report on the social media issue was released to mark World Sleep Day, something that was based on interviews with more than 107,000 respondents.
In the report, it was learned that more than 67% of the said respondents sent text messages or chat before going to sleep. Many of the respondents were young people.
Among the respondents included Zhang Ying, a civil servant working in Wuxi, Jiangsu province. He would spend hours on games like Angry Birds or Call of Duty on her smartphone or computer before sleep.
“For me, playing games is relaxing after coming back from a long day at work, especially lying in bed,” said the 25-year-old.
