Screen Time and COVID
🧠 Psych - 169/200
Today we are talking about a cross sectional study around increased screen time during COVID-19 period.
What is it?
Among 433 responders to the first survey, the prevalence of headaches, especially pressure points and band-like pressure was higher than any previously reported among adolescents in the literature, reaching 93.4%. 
Screen time was also higher than any previous reports with 95.6% spending 9 hours or more on screen while 64% of adolescents spending at least 12 hours a day on screen.
In addition, the majority (82%) don't have consistent sleep habits and 41.8% consider themselves anxious.

What do I need to know?
Headaches among adolescents are associated with increased screen use, sleep disorders, and self-reported anxiety.
The present trends are likely to have major long term implications on adolescents’ health and academic achievements and should alarm educators and health officials to intervene in this situation.
