Teens mobile stress problem.

FREQUENT mobile phone use may be associated with teenage stress, restlessness and sleep problems.

Researchers in Sweden found that teenagers who used their mobile phones often were more restless than infrequent users. They also had more 'careless' lifestyles, consumed more stimulating drinks, suffered from disrupted sleep or insomnia, and were more susceptible to stress and fatigue.

Yet most parents of teenagers would have thought that restlessness, sleep problems and stress were far more likely to occur when a teen was deprived of their mobile. You live and learn.
