THE CZ-SYNDROME

What is the CZ-syndrome?

The CZ-syndrome (city-zleeper-syndrome) is a lifestyle disease due to internet use/addiction.

Statistics Supporting The CZ-Syndrome Hypothesis

Problem

Internet Use: The average person spend about 9 hours in total and 3-4 hours of non essential internet screen time every day.

Consequences

Stressful environment/Less mindfulness): It is enough to hold a phone in your hand to create an increase in stress levels and occupation (reduction) of your working memory. 

Sleep deprivation: 57% percent more teens were sleep deprived in 2015 than in 1991. In just the four years from 2012 to 2015, 22 percent more teens failed to get seven hours of sleep.

Social isolation: The number of teens who get together with their friends nearly every day dropped by more than 40 percent from 2000 to 2015. The number of teens who feel lonely and left out has reached all-time highs across age groups.

Less movement: The number one excuse for not exercising is lack of time. At the same time as we spend on average 60+ minutes on just social media. The 9 hours we spend in front of a computer are almost without an exception sedentary. 

Outcomes

Unhappiness: Eighth-graders who spend 10 or more hours a week on social media are 56 percent more likely to say they’re unhappy than those who devote less time to social media (Teens spend on average 30 hours/week on their phone).  All screen activities are linked to less happiness, and all non-screen activities are linked to more happiness. 

Depression: Boys’ depressive symptoms increased by 21 percent from 2012 to 2015, while girls’ increased by 50 percent. Three times as many 12-to-14-year-old girls killed themselves in 2015 as in 2007, compared with twice as many boys.

Suicide: Teens who spend three hours a day or more on electronic devices are 35% more likely to have a risk factor for suicide. In 2011, for the first time in 24 years, the teen suicide rate was higher than the teen homicide rate.
