    The ubiquitous smartphone may ironically be counterproductive to work efficiency as a new study suggests use of the device for late night work lowers next day productivity.

    In a pair of studies over a broad spectrum of U.S. workers, Michigan State University’s Russell Johnson, Ph.D., and colleagues found that people who monitored their smart phones for business purposes after 9 p.m. were more tired and were less engaged the following day on the job.

    “Smartphones are almost perfectly designed to disrupt sleep,â€￾ said Johnson — who acknowledges keeping his own smartphone at his bedside at night.

    “Because they keep us mentally engaged late into the evening, they make it hard to detach from work so we can relax and fall asleep.â€￾

    That's what I keep telling the daughter too. We have never brought our phones in the bedroom and the DH does not even have a smartphone.
