A LITERATURE REVIEW ANALYZING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CELL PHONE USAGE AND SLEEP QUALITY
Smart phones and portable mobile devices are the new normal in the United States. Much of the research thus far has focused on the effects of screen-use on children and adolescents: lower attention spans, difficulty concentrating, and academic performance to name a few. Research would be remiss to exclude adults from this conversation. Society has yet to fully understand the long-term effects of personalized mobile devices on the human brain. This review aims to analyze the relationship between smartphone use and sleep quality in adult subjects. Individuals that use these handheld computers are sacrificing free thought and critical thinking. The aspects of social media are a gift to some and for others it is a tool that disrupts precious sleeping time.
