Screens Don’t Ruin Your Sleep . . . Even Without Them, You’d Still Sleep Poorly

We’ve been told over and over that it’s TERRIBLE for us to stare at screens before we go to bed and they’re hurting our sleep. And it’s true. But here’s the twist: A new study found that even if we DIDN’T have screens, we’d still sleep terribly.

Researchers from Duke University studied people’s sleep in a remote farming village in Madagascar that doesn’t have electricity or artificial light. And they found the people actually slept LESS than people in the United States.

The researchers say that whether it’s stress, noise, having a lot on your mind, or any other distraction, there’s no one secret to good sleep or one cause of bad sleep.
