Smartphone Wrecks Sleep: Study

Here’s another reason to banish your smartphone from your bedroom: Using it late at night inhibits sleep and diminishes work productivity the next day, new research suggests.
University of Washington scientists found that workers who used smartphones at night got less sleep, which cut into their effectiveness in the office the next day, the Daily Mail reports.
“Our new research indicates the greater connectivity comes at a cost: Using a smartphone to cram more work into a given evening results in less work done the next day,” says Christopher Barnes, assistant professor of management at the University of Washington's Foster School of Business and lead researcher on the study to be published in the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes.
