    Perpetrator of Sleep Deprivation in Teens

    iStock-694364182New research from Alex Agostini, PhD and Stephanie Centofanti, PhD, sleep experts at the University of South Australia, has emphasized the significance of sleep, especially for teenagers who are going through a cascade of changes, both mentally and physically. This research highlights the importance of sleep for both physical and mental health. Parents and doctors often overlook the impact that sleep has on the pathophysiology of disease. The disruption of sleep patterns, for example, resulting in less than six hours of quality sleep, has been connected to the development of behavioral problems. Interestingly, the researchers found that technology was one of the main perpetrators, exposing the detrimental effects of spending excessive amounts of time online.

    Dr, Centofanti explained, "Teens spend a lot of time on devices, whether it's texting friends, playing games, or watching videos, using technology late into the night is one of the most common disruptors of good sleep. Overuse of technology can also contribute to mental health issues likely to increase anxiety." Many students throughout the world are also using technology instead of physically being on campus, adding more fuel to the fire. According to Dr. Centofanti, the overuse of technology can lead to feelings of anxiousness and contribute to incidences of waking up in the middle of the night, concluding, "To make a real difference to teenage mental health, both parents and medical practitioners must understand how sleep can affect mental health in teenagers."
