Turn off the mobile, charge it outside your bedroom: Huffington

Dubai, Feb 11 (UNI) Attachment to mobile phones is going to lead to a "worldwide burn out", warns Arianna Huffington, saying there is a global delusion that one always needs to 'be on' to succeed and that sleep is optional.

“I do it every night. Your phone is a depository of everyone’s demands of you.

“You have to take it, turn it off and charge it outside of the bedroom,” said the founder of The Huffington Post who collapsed from exhaustion two years after founding her eponymous digital magazine.

Speaking here at the World Government Summit, Huffington said, “A lot of us do that in the pursuit of success, but actually our performance is undermined when we don’t get enough sleep.”

“There is a global delusion that we always need to 'be on' to succeed and that sleep is optional.

“That has led to an incredible crisis in both mental health and chronic diseases, with an explosion in obesity levels and heart conditions.”



She also hit out at a culture of thinking about work constantly.



“Our success is a product of the quality of our input, not how much time we put in.



“People keep working all night answering emails and never have a proper end to the working day.



“You have to draw a line."

Failing to do this, she said, would only lead to an increase in stress-induced sleepless nights.

On the pressures of digital culture, Huffington said that young women, particularly teenagers, were vulnerable to depression.

“People are constantly comparing the messy reality of their life with the curated images from others that give the impression of a perfect life," she said.
