A new study has revealed that Australians have pretty bad sleeping habits and a lot of it has to do with our phones or more specifically social media.

The study, recently published in the Sleep Medicine journal revealed that 31 per cent of participants had their body clock disrupted on weekends compared to work nights.

Professor Robert Adams, the study’s lead researcher and sleep specialist with the University of Adelaide and the Sleep Health Foundation said a lot of people’s body clocks are out of alignment and as we know this negatively impacts  their health and well-being. 

The professor said the findings show the need for a national inquiry to relieve our sleep loss epidemic.

In the past research suggested that using technology before bed can shorten sleep and increase tiredness.
