Does This Cause You Stress? You're Not Alone!

by Ben Olson

Truth! Some people actually lose sleep over technology…and I'm not talking about being addicted to Candy Crush.  A new survey found that more than a quarter of Americans have lost sleep due to slow computer performance!  In fact, the average person has lost a whopping 119 hours of free time overall thanks to computer-related delays in the last year.  Anyone who’s dealt with a sluggish computer understands the rage it can cause- and can probably relate to the fact that 14% of people have taken their frustrations out on a gadget.  If you’ve ever had the urge to throw your laptop against the wall for taking so long to boot up, you’re not alone- nearly 70% of us say waiting for their computer to start stresses them out.
