Consistent night sleep invigorates man to be brisk in daytime. Six-Eight hours of sound sleep is incumbent for everyone. But, the technologies had made a worse impact on our sleeps. A new phenomenon called “Sleep Texting” has arrived among youngsters. What does it mean? Most of us have the habit of keeping our cell phones near to bed. And very few among them turns the vibrate mode on to get notified when they get new texts or emails. A young men/woman working in a private company gets up in the middle of the night to her vibrating phone. Sleepy, she notices a message and texts back. The next morning, she has no memory of sending the text.The above phenomenon is now being referred to as “sleep texting”.

The primary reason for Sleep Texting is that we stick to Cell phones, Televisions, Laptops in our bed time. Sleep texting is most common among Australians whereas Americans suffer by sleep emailing . A survey has been made on baby boomers (46-64 year olds), generation X’ers (30-45 year olds), generation Y’ers (19-29 year olds) and generation Z’ers (13-18 year olds) . Among them Generations Y’ers are most commonly affected by this sleep texting..

About two-thirds of baby boomers (67%) and generation X’ers (63%) and half of generation Z’ers (50%) and generation Y’ers (49%) watch television every night or almost every night within the hour before going to sleep.Computer or laptop use is also common. Roughly six in ten (61%) say they use their laptops or computers at least a few nights a week within the hour before bed. More than half of generation Z’ers (55%) and slightly less of generation Y’ers (47%) say they surf the Internet every night or almost every night within the hour before sleep.Cell phone use, specifically texting and talking on the phone, shows a significant age gap. More than half of generation Z’ers (56%) and nearly half of generation Y’ers (42%) say they send, read or receive text messages every night or almost every night in the hour before bed compared to 15% of generation X’ers and 5% of baby boomers.Cell phones were sometimes a sleep disturbance. About in one in ten of generation Z’ers (9%) say that they are awakened after they go to bed every night or almost every night by a phone call, text message or email. About one in five of generation Y’ers (20%) and generation Z’ers (18%) say this happens at least a few nights a week.
