Insomnia linked to watching TV online
This article discusses research showing that people who report having insomnia are more likely to watch TV online or use a tablet to watch TV - these findings are new. The results also showed what we already knew about people with insomnia - they are more likely to be divorced females between 35-54 years old, and self-employed or unemployed. Perhaps people with insomnia watch more online TV as they are more likely to watch TV in bed and in the middle of the night. On an IPAD, for example, someone could watch TV in bed with headphones and not wake a bedpartner. I am not trying to give anyone ideas here, as this practice is terrible sleep hygiene.
