Concerns around technology causing Indians to lose sleep

According to the results of a poll, Indians are having trouble getting quality sleep because they are distracted by their electronic devices, but they are also willing to prioritise physical activity above having a restful sleep.

32% of Indian individuals, according to a worldwide study conducted by Philips, indicate that technology is a significant sleep distractor, while 19% of Indian adults report that overlapping work hours with typical sleep time (shift work sleep disorder) is a main obstacle to getting enough sleep. Exercise, rather than sleep, is considered by 66% of Indians to be the most important component in determining health and well-being.

According to the findings of the poll, 45% of Indians engage in meditation in order to achieve and sustain a good night’s sleep, whereas just 24% of adult respondents choose for specialised bedding. According to the results of the poll, even if there is a growing awareness of sleep disorders on a worldwide scale, adequate sleep is still not a priority in India. According to the findings of the poll, “Indians regard technology as a key sleep distractor; they prioritise exercise above sleep.”

26 percent of respondents throughout the world suffered from sleeplessness, and 21 percent of those respondents were kept awake by their own snoring. Other main obstacles to getting a decent night’s rest were worrying (said by 58% of respondents) and being distracted by technology (26%).

The most common treatments for getting a good night’s sleep include playing relaxing music, which was used by 36% of people, followed by the establishment of a predetermined bedtime and wake-up regimen, which was used by 32% of people, among other things.

The poll included the responses of 15,000 individuals from 13 countries, and it found that worldwide 77% of adults have attempted to enhance their quality of sleep.

These nations include the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, France, China, and others.

The majority of individuals throughout the world are suffering from poor sleep quality, which is causing them to feel fatigued (46%), angry (41%), unmotivated (39%), and unable to concentrate (39%). (39 per cent).

“Even though getting enough quality sleep is critical to maintaining good health, more than 100 million individuals across the world suffer with sleep apnea. More than eighty percent of these individuals have not been properly identified, and thirty percent of them have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep “according to the findings of the poll titled “Better Sleep, Better Health.”
