The Impact of Internet Addiction on Sleep Quality and Mental Wellbeing: A Study on Higher Secondary Students

Anusree .A | Kavyasree .K [2]

Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between internet addiction, sleep quality and mental wellbeing among higher secondary students in the Calicut district of Kerala, India. A total of 200 participants were assessed using the internet addiction test, sleep quality scale and Warwick- Edinburgh mental wellbeing scale. The statistical analysis revealed a significant correlation between internet addiction and sleep quality and between sleep quality and mental wellbeing. However no significant relationship was found between internet addiction and mental wellbeing. The study also found a significant gender difference in sleep quality, but not in internet addiction or mental wellbeing. The findings suggest that while internet addiction does not directly influence mental wellbeing, it does affect sleep quality, which in turn impacts mental wellbeing.
