      I set my phone to automatically go into Do Not Disturb mode at night, but still ring if my parents call me. If they call at night, it must be urgent.

        That seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to do, very different from allowing “notifications and messages to disrupt their sleep”.

      Someone with, for instance, older kids who could get themselves into a situation (and only communicate by text) and a parent in a different time zone who’s got Alzheimer’s and is being cared for by a stressed-out sibling who needs support and agreement from the rest of us by group email.

          Yes. Android for example has an option to allow starred contacts or certain conversation notifications to always ignore do not disturb, as well as letting any calls through if the same number calls twice during 15 minutes.

            I’d love to use that feature, but it just seems so ineffective on my android. Things I whitelist fail to show, and things I blacklist pop up.

      I sometimes forget to turn on do not disturb so this has definitely happened to me before ¯\(ツ)

      I have had multiple people in my life tell me that it is irresponsible to not have my phone on, 24/7, in case they need to message me about something.

      These are the same people who get angry anytime I message them and they are busy, but also get angry if I am busy and don’t immediately reply to them.

      I’ve been woken up so many times at 2 am…

      At least in my life, its quite common for people to be hypocritical douchebags.

        Most phones these days allow you to set a DND schedule which you can customize to allow specific numbers for emergencies and people that don’t abuse it.

          Mine has a setting where if a number calls you once, it blocks. If it calls you a second time, it goes through. And it works! I use it all the time.

            Well yeah, but the problem is typically the people who you don’t want you calling you in the middle of night are also the ones willing to call you a few times till you pick up.

        Do Not Disturb, since I started using that feature I sleep much better. I even have set to automatically go into that state when I go to bed.

        Also began using it for other things as well. Like watching tv and when I am driving.

        Bruh I work in IT (maintaining servers too) and my day ends at 5. You need a union. If you’re on call literally all the time you should be getting paid overtime.

        if this is the case, it should be in your contract, you should get paid for on-call duty and get a free SIM and/or phone for those notifications, so you can mute or shutdown notifications from your private SIM/phone

    I’ve not read the article yet, but I’m going to assume it’s affecting my sleep because I’m reading about how it’s affecting my sleep at 04:21 instead of, you know, going to sleep. Just a guess

      It’s that, plus “notifications can disrupt your sleep.”

      “A much greater issue [than the blue light] is likely to be the content viewed,” says Peirson. “Reading work emails relating to impending deadlines is clearly going to cause anxiety, and anxiety is strongly related to insomnia.”
