Last week, we asked readers how quickly they turned to their phones after waking, and the answer turns out to be: most of you hit your mobile before you’ve even had time to wipe the crusty stuff out of your eyes. A whopping 68.% of you said that checking your phone was “the very first thing you do”. Add in the 10% who grab their phone as soon as they’ve been to the toilet, and it’s clear that we don’t want to be disconnected for long.

Just 6.7% held off using their phone until their daily commute had begun, while roughly 5% went for each of the other options of waiting until after a shower, checking the phone at breakfast or ignoring it altogether. Thanks everyone for voting, and I hope you sleep soundly tonight and remember to put your phone in bedside mode.
