Do you use your cell phone as an alarm clock every night? Studies suggest that nearly half (48%) of all people age 16 to 34 use a cell phone alarm, as do 26% of people age 35 to 54 and around 9% of adults age 55 and up. And when your smartphone is always within arm’s reach, you’re more likely to give into digital temptation, even though using electronics at night makes it much harder to fall asleep.
