Excessive use of mobile phones and computers can cause sleep
disturbances and stress which can hamper emotional health.
Answers to questionnaires from 4,100 respondents aged 20-24
reveal the extent of damage caused by excessive use of mobile phones and
computers, especially when they are used without taking frequent breaks.
"Regularly using a computer late at night is associated
not only with sleep disorders but also with stress and depressive symptoms in
both men and women. This means taking breaks, taking time to recover after
intensive use, and putting limits on your availability", researchers said.
