New study says smartphones are wrecking our ability to work and sleep

February 7th, 2014 at 4:32 PM
Smartphone Work Sleep Study

Do you find that reading on your smartphone late at night ruins your ability to sleep? Well you’re not alone. The Wall Street Journal reports that researchers from University of Florida, Michigan State University and University of Washington have found that reading on your smartphone and checking work email on your phone late at night will make you much more restless and will even make you less productive at work the next day. The researchers say that smartphone fatigue can be so bad that it might offset all the productivity benefits that smartphones have to our work lives.

So what’s the cure to this self-induced affliction? The researchers say you should tell your boss that you’re shutting off your phone for the evening and that you’ll start checking your email again in the morning. Because at a certain point, if your smartphone is affecting your performance at the office it just isn’t worth having turned on at all hours of the day.
