People today sleep less and less. What are causes of this? Do you think this is a positive development?

It is true that sleeping
time
for both adults and youngsters is shrinking. In my point of view, they are several reasons causing
this
problem, which is definitely negative.
First
, working people nowadays are imposed more and more work that they could not reject because of the fiercely competitive society. They are supposed to spend most of their energy and
time
on their jobs without reasonable
rest
, family
time
or vacation.
This
working style obviously will decrease their
time
for deep
rest
and sleep. Another factor causing adults to sleep less is that they may be controlled by some electronic gadgets
such
as mobile phones and computers. They are indulging in playing games or browsing online day and night.
Second
, students have less sleep
time
due to much more homework assigned by schools. In order to obtain outstanding fame for schools, teachers are usually very strict with the adolescents’ study. They teach a lot in class while children may need extra
time
to finish their homework in order to fully understand it, which will take up most of their leisure
time
.
On the other hand
, teenagers are more likely to be distracted by current electronic products than adults, leading to less sleep. In my opinion, less sleep
time
is really a setback, because it is greatly harmful to health. Without adequate
rest
, people can not concentrate well on their job or study.
Thus
, they must contribute more
time
on working or studying. Eventually, the bad cycle will bring diseases, ruining the immune system. In conclusion, people should not sacrifice their
rest
time
for working, learning or playing games, because they will get sick from insufficient sleeping.
