MattressNextDay asked Americans questions about findings regarding sleep duration, bedtime routines, technology usage, and partner dynamics, amongst other critical aspects of sleep quality. They also asked what Americans do in bed other than Sleeping, and the results found the following:
|What do you do in bed other than sleeping||%|
|To watch movies / series||68%|
|Relations with partner||47%|
|To listen to music / podcasts||45%|
|To catch up with family and friends via calls, etc||28%|
|To work e.g., send / respond to emails, etc||19%|
We are definitely guilty of all of the above, but is it healthy?
According to the Cleveland Health Clinic;
“Medical providers agree that working from your bed could disrupt your sleep schedule and actually make you less productive. Not to mention it can wreak havoc on your posture – causing you annoying aches and pain that could be avoided from a proper workplace setup.”
However, Real Simple says;
“You may even find you’re more relaxed, productive, or your creative juices flow more freely when you work from your bed. And that’s okay.”
Wherever you find yourself – comfort is key – and you know what is best for you.
