**80% of teens admit to using their device in bed when they were supposed to be sleeping and waking up to respond to messages causing further sleep disruption

**When on a device between 9-11pm, the blue light emitted from the screen causes a significant decrease in melatonin, the body's hormone that controls sleep-wake cycles

**Over 90% of research studies indicate that decreased and interrupted sleep, due to increased screen time, has negative effects on academic performance as well as physical and mental health
