Feeling Tired and Unproductive? Blame Your Smartphone

Feeling Tired and Unproductive? Blame Your Smartphone


Smartphones are ruining our lives, according to a new study from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

A recent survey of more than 700 mobile phone users across Australia uncovered a pattern of so-called “technoference.”

The term, as explained by study leader Oscar Oviedo-Trespalacios, refers to the everyday intrusions and interruptions people experience due to handsets.

“For example, self-reports relating to loss of sleep and productivity showed that these negative outcomes had significantly increased during the last 13 years,” Oviedo-Trespalacios, from QUT’s Center for Accident Research and Road Safety–Queensland, said in a statement.
