How is our smartphone damaging our health?

How is our smartphone damaging our health?

Smartphones have become a necessity for us and well, we all can't really blame anyone for this. They do tend to solve most of our problems and that's exactly why they are the last thing we use before we go to sleep and they are the first thing we use when we wake up. This approach is damaging, yes – damaging, to your brain. Oh and this is backed by science by the way. According to studies, sleeping with the smartphone and engaging with it even about an hour ago before you go to sleep can seriously damage your sleep quality and health in ways that will be lasting.

The phone comprises of a very bright blue light that helps your phone to be visible even during sunny days. This light confuses your brain into registering the light as being sunlight when you use the phone at night and thus stimulates it to remain awake. This may sound like a magical way to pull off an all-nighter, but the costs are too high.

Many of the folks would boast that they are capable of working just fine even when they are sleeping less than the recommended 7-9 hrs. of sleep. However, they are wrong. You don't work just fine when you're sleeping less, you become conditioned in a way that you do not notice. Despite the fact that whether you're getting enough sleep or not, if you're spending the hour before sleep using your smartphone, then your brain ceases the production of the hormone melatonin that gives your body the ‘time to sleep' cues.

A number of health risks that are associated with this include a decrease in melatonin thus resulting in less sleep and therefore, fatigue leading to shorter memory and slow reflexes. It can lead to obesity, depression and cancer.

What can you do about it? Make it a habit to put your phone away at least an hour before you go to bed. If you can put it in another room; that'd be great!
