Study: Cell Phone Fatigue Plagues Users

Friday, 28 April 2006 12:00 AM

Staying connected to family and friends with cell phones, pagers, and Blackberries sometimes backfires, according to a study from the University of Wisconsin.

Sociology professor Noelle Chesley headed the 2-year study of 1,367 device users.

She found that the most frequent users reported feeling distracted and tired at home and many of the women in the group reported feeling distressed about getting family calls at work.

"It's rarely good news when your boss calls you at home -- or when your kids call work," said Chesley. She advised setting rules to limit less-than-urgent calls from the office and from home.

The study appeared in the Journal of Marriage and Family.
