Six in 10 Americans are turning to tech to aid their sleep, according to new research.
From using smartphones to set their bedtime and apps to limit evening screen time, to using a watch to note their biometrics, 57% say tech has been beneficial in improving their sleep.
Sleep isn’t as simple as just laying down and closing our eyes, now — in this age of screens and digital detoxing, the survey of 2,000 Americans found 66% would actually like to incorporate more technology into their nighttime routine.
Commissioned by Eight Sleep and conducted by OnePoll in advance of World Sleep Day on March 13, the survey looked at Americans’ poor sleep habits — and the modern-day solutions they’re turning to.
It’s no wonder people are looking for something to improve their sleep, as results found the average respondent received just five hours and seven minutes of sleep per night — much less than the recommended eight hours of shut-eye.
