Mobile Phones are now an essential part of our lives, from assisting us to wake up (alarm) to helping us communicate easier and faster. In the age that we are in, a mobile phone is virtually in almost all homes and the hands of individuals. When it comes to the activities we use them to do with them, the list is endless. However, most people are fond of sleeping with their phones, whether intentionally or by accident, here’s why you should stop.
1. CAN SET YOUR HOME ABLAZE
A tiny spark from your mobile phone coupled with the acid content of the battery makes phones. Covering the phone with items like pillows, blankets, only increases the chances of a fire outbreak. To prevent this, sleep a few feet away from your mobile phones.
2. REDUCES SOUND SLEEP
Due to the fact that we want to be constantly aware of notifications from messages and the likes. The noise from the notifications, or vibrations if your phone is on vibration, disrupts the sleeping pattern of individuals. Leading to loss of sleep, which negatively affects us in the long run, making us prone to sickness.
All phones emit some level of radiation. Whether intentional or not, when we sleep in proximity with these gadgets, we absorb most of the radiation, which in turn causes a variety of illnesses, which ultimately lead to cancer.
4. LACK OF FOCUS
Due to sleep deprivation by our “silent companions”, the brain is tired. The effect of this is that tasks of the day take longer to achieve because the brain simply cannot focus, as it has not rested properly. Which in turn leads any individual to become irritable and quick to snap at the slightest things.
