Smartphones have perhaps become as important as an organ. The majority of our time is spent staring at smartphone screens and more often than not, we take our phones to bed. But did you know, you are subjecting your body to numerous health problems by this one simple habit? Read on to know more…
Blue Light Nightmare
The colour blue is said to boost alertness levels and make you more aware of your surroundings. While being alert and awake are good qualities when you are working or monster hunting, you do not want to stay wide awake when you want to fall asleep. The screen of a mobile phone emits such blue light which keeps us awake at night. Further to this, this light can cause disturbed sleep, insomnia and nightmares, as a part of your brain wants you to stay awake, and a part of it wants you to sleep!
While a lot has been designed and developed to suppress this property, nothing has yet been invented which prevents a mishap altogether! It does not matter how much you spend on your mobile, battery explosions are a real threat. Most devices are vulnerable when they heat up. If you charge your phone near, or on your bed at night, you are risking a lot.
Mobiles emit radiation. Everyone knows that. While there has been no conclusive proof of the same, but that is largely due to lack of studies on the varied and adaptive nature of the mutations radiation can cause in us. As a simple test, keep your mobile phone at least 3 feet away when you sleep. You will automatically feel better quality of sleep and feel more refreshed when you wake up!
It is important to go to sleep with an empty mind, a clean slate of sorts. That way, your body’s anxiety/stress levels will be the lowest when you will go to bed and you will fall asleep faster.
You don’t use your phone while you sleep. So why keep it near? Make it a habit to keep your phone away at least 30 minutes before going to sleep… and let us know in the comments section below if it worked for you!
