The stress of daily life and excessive dependence on mobile phones has led to a condition called 'sleep texting' where people send unintelligible messages to their friends and family in their sleep without their knowledge.

Sleep specialist Dr. David Cunnington, of the Melbourne Sleep Disorder Center said, "We have had patients who have reported sending text messages to their friends and family while asleep.It is one of those things that happens, but it is very rare, and certainly not a common trend."

Sleep texting could be the result of overwork and stress. With the technology of smartphones that help receive e-mails instantly, people find themselves constantly on them. Even during the sleep state, the mind is unable to let go of these devices and sometimes people end up mimicking the same activities of the day during sleep.
