Overview

On this account I wanted to exlpore how the internet effects people's sleeping habits so I asked the question "How internet effects sleeping habit?" I found this topic to be important because with technology growing as fast as it is, I became curious as to how it is effecting our lives off screen. With the excessive use of the internet and other types of media, there had to be some kind of side effects taking place.

 

Due to social media and video games being more of an activity of teenagers and children, most of the research that I found focused on that age group. Although there were some tips that could both apply to adults and young adults, most of the information was for parents and how to prevent their kids from such side effects like poor quality of sleep, insomnia, ADHD, learning problems, health problems and mood problems.
