How much time do you spend in your bedroom, doing something other than sleeping?
A lot of studies have said that the bedroom shouldn’t be used for anything that’s not sleep-related, as it can slowly coach your body into thinking that it needs to be doing that other activity instead. You know how some people can fall asleep instantly in the car? Their bodies have acclimated themselves to equate “car” and “sleep”. Doing work at home while in bed can lead to the same trouble… but in this case, it would be the inability to sleep.
That’s the reasoning behind a recent survey conducted by SERTA, the mattress people — all to find out what PEOPLE REALLY DO IN BED.
Let’s take a look:
- 33% of adults use the Internet while in bed (surfing websites, checking email)
- 60% of parents watch TV together
- Younger adults, age 18-35, are more likely to make phone calls, work, or watch TV while in bed when compared to others who took the survey
