Do you like to unwind before bed with the latest bestselling book? Make sure it’s the dead-tree version. Recent studies have shown that tablets, laptops, e-readers and other electronic devices impact sleep negatively.
Nowadays, insomnia and sleep problems are running rampant through societies all across the world. No matter how much we avoid technology at night, no matter how relaxed we think we are, and no matter what we do to try to ease into sleep at a reasonable hour, sleep problems still occur far more often than we desire. Nearly 70% of adults have reported some type of sleep problem (whether diagnosed or not), and 69% of children experience sleep problems at least a few nights a week.
While women and men both face sleep problems, the way in which they struggle to get a good night’s sleep is considerably different. They may be diagnosed similarly for their sleep problems, and they may experience similar results from poor sleep (daily sleepiness, frequent sickness, more health problems, etc.). However, women and men deal with a much different set of sleep problems based on their genders.
