Add this to the long list of SCREENZ-related disorders: sleepless nights and worn teeth.
The participants were asked about feelings of stress and tension throughout the day, a tendency to wake up at night, a need to be available to the cell phone, teeth-grinding and jaw pain.
Studies found that 54% of secular smartphone users occasionally wake up in the middle of the night, compared with 20% from the ultra-Orthodox population.
In addition, half of the secular respondents (50%) feel a moderate to high level of stress due to the cell phone, compared to only 22% among the ultra-Orthodox.
And these are likely all adults. The devices produce the same maladies in youth along with the altered brain chemistry and structure. This is all what happens when the mind is permanently stuck in overdrive. Maybe take a break or simplify things??
