Mindless scrolling on smartphones affects sleep cycle. Pixabay

Sleeping post 10 p.m. is clinically declared as an inappropriate time to go to sleep and it triggers a change in the sleeping pattern that leads to sleep deprivation. This is irrespective of the number of hours of sleep. However, a recent study has revealed that although a majority of Indians are aware that sleeping at 10 is an ideal time, they tend to give excuses when it comes to actually follow it.

A study conducted by Godrej Interio across 1,000 Indians living across the metros found that seven out of every ten respondents cites ‘binge watching’ as an excuse to not sleep on time. Around 56 percent of the respondents admitted that “work for home” which includes the household chores could be delaying their sleep time while 80 percent of the respondents said they do not sleep on time due to mindless scrolling on smartphones. The ideal sleep time would be around 10 p.m.

The study was conducted to emphasize how health is becoming more important and how sleeping on time is quintessential to leading a healthy life.”

Also, 44 percent of respondents mention “work from home” which includes official work as the primary reason to not sleep on time. (IANS/SP)

As the Omicron variant threat looms, Google is reconsidering its plans to ask full-time employees to return to offices by January 10.

As the Omicron variant threat looms, Google is reconsidering its plans to ask full-time employees to return to offices by January 10. According to an email from Google VP Chris Rackow, seen by CNBC, Google will not be requiring its employees to return to offices on January 10 as expected after all. The company has changed its return to work plans several times as the pandemic evolved.

In August, when the delta variant was a top concern, Google had announced plans for hybrid return-to-work till January 10, 2022. Rackow said in the email that full-time employees will wait until the new year to assess when US offices can safely return to a "stable, long-term working environment. "None of the US locations will adopt the hybrid working mandate on January 10 as planned," he added. Rackow said that Google will allow specific locations to decide their timelines for returning their respective local workforces to the office.

Apple is reportedly asking employees to return to offices starting February 1 as part of a hybrid work pilot who will be able to work remotely for four weeks a year. After the first US case of the Omicron Covid-19 variant was reported in California, the federal government was set to announce a bunch of measures to help counter the virus, including campaigns to increase vaccinations and booster shots, additional testing requirements for travellers entering the country from abroad and plans to make rapid at-home coronavirus testing free for more people. International travellers coming to the US will have to test within a day of departure, regardless of vaccination status, rather than the 72 hours currently required for vaccinated travellers, under new protocols early next week. The new testing rules will apply both to US citizens and foreign nationals entering the country. (IANS/ MBI)
