It Wasn’t Me! I Must Have Been Sleep-Texting!

It Wasn’t Me! I Must Have Been Sleep-Texting!

It seems that we really can’t bear to be parted from our mobile phones; not even long enough to sleep. Cases of “sleep-texting” are on the rise, with more and more cases of people using their smartphones to send texts while asleep.

With traditional alarm clocks being unplugged in favour of your mobile phone alarm function, more of us are keeping our mobile phones close by when we go to bed. Very few of us turn off our phone, or adjust the settings to stop notifications and texts appearing during ‘sleeping’ hours. This has left us constantly alert to our phones, and we will often read and reply to texts even if they come through in the middle of the night. Reaching for our phones in the dark has become such a habit that we are now doing it while we sleep.

The bad news, according to sleep expert Dr Josh Werber, is that sleep texting is hindering the amount of essential deep sleep we are getting. And the dangers don’t end there. Serial sleep-texters will often wake up to find that they have sent embarrassing, inappropriate or just plain nonsensical messages to friends, family, colleagues, bosses and clients.
