Study shows teen cellphone use at night linked to insomnia and poor school performance

LUBBOCK, Texas - A 2015 Seton Hall study found teenage cell phone use at bedtime is connected to insomnia, which then correlates with poor school performance. Two thirds of these students said they experienced sleep loss, leading to 61 percent saying it had an effect on their school work.

Dr. Christopher Rose, the Covenant Sleep Lab Medical Director said finding a consistent sleep routine is the best way to prevent insomnia and stay attentive in school.

“Getting a routine sleep, waking up at the same time, going to bed at the same time,” Rose said. “Allowing for younger children to have 10 to 11 hours of sleep and teenagers should at least have 9. That should help with the sleep problem and then in turn, improve school performance.”
