THIS Many Of Us Wake Up to Check Our Phone
There's really NO moment when we're willing to give our phones a rest, huh? I guess, sadly, that does not surprise me. According to a new survey, 26% of adults wake up at least once during the night to check their phone.
- 62% of us also keep our phone within reach of our bed
- While 12% of us literally cuddle with our phone and keep it IN bed with us.
- And 23% of us check our phone within five minutes of waking up.
The survey also found that 39% of kids say they wish their parents would spend less time on their phones. Yikes! You know it's bad when kids wish this... Aren't they the ones we assume are always on their phones?
Health officials have long cautioned against using a cell phone within 30-minutes of going to bed, so I'm gonna assume they'd also warn against using one in the middle of the night, while sleeping.
