In the evening, lying on the bed before sleeping, we manipulate his phone. Even if it’s only for 5 minutes, we always reply to a text message or we surf on social networks. And often the light off.
Obviously we are far from suspecting the negative consequences of such a habit on our health.
Here are some of them.
1- Destruction of brain cells
Spending time on your phone before bed prevents our brain from having a little respite to regain strength. In the short term, you will notice that your memory is not as effective as before and you will have trouble concentrating. Then your problem-solving or thinking skills will eventually be seriously damaged.
2- The signal “stays awake” to your brain
The brightness of your device can interfere with falling asleep. Indeed, it leads the brain to suppress melatonin, the sleep hormone.
3- Your physical health pays the highest price
When you do not get enough sleep, your physical health takes a hit and you know it’s related to your phone addiction.
Handling your phone before sleeping has an impact on your insulin production, which increases the feeling of hunger and therefore leads to weight gain. This weight gain often causes feelings of fatigue. A real vicious circle.
4-You do not sleep enough
A logical consequence of using the phone at bedtime is obviously the loss of sleep.
Even if you go to bed late, you still have to get up at the same time …
So you sleep less. Lack of sleep causes fatigue, irritability and many other health problems.
