In today’s technology-savvy world, it’s normal to fall asleep with the television on while your phone charges next to you. But did you know that electronic devices are a leading cause of poor sleep habits among parents and children?
The National Sleep Foundation 2014 Sleep in America ® Poll discovered that sleep quality diminished if electronics are left on overnight. People are more susceptible to having trouble falling asleep due to the bright light and are more likely to wake up in the middle of the night.
According to the poll, of the 48% of parents who report they sometimes leave one or more “active” electronic devices – tablet or smartphone, laptop or desktop computer, and/or video game – on after falling asleep, 57% say their child does the same.
To get the best rest possible, Serta challenges you to take the Give It a Rest Pledge!
Pledge to give your electronics a rest before bed and improve your sleep habits.
I pledge to turn off my television or computer at least two hours before going to sleep.
I will silence my phone while sleeping and remove it from my quiet space.
I will encourage others to take the Give It a Rest Pledge and improve their sleep habits.
I will set an example for my children to put down the electronics before bed.
No matter how many obstacles I face, I will continue to work diligently on my journey to improve my sleep habits.
The sweepstakes will run from March 7, 2014, through March 21, 2014, exclusively on Serta’s Facebook page, where additional details and Official Rules can be found.
