Are you addicted to your smart phone? See how the light of a mobile phone affects the body and brain!
Before we go to bed, we like to check out all our the social media, send a few texts of our friends or loved ones, to be sure that we did not miss anything, and so on. How the smart phone affects your body?
Bright blue light emitted from the smart phone is essentially the same light that the sun radiates, and because of this the brain receives information that it is still a day. Thus, even when you think you’re deadly tired and you could not keep your eyes open, if you look on your smart phone you will be awake soon after.
As a result of this light on the smart phone screen, it stops your brain from the release of melatonin, a hormone that is used to induce sleep, and prevents you fall asleep.
Experimental studies have revealed that the average person who uses a mobile device before going to sleep can actually have trouble falling asleep.
What is more interesting is that this effect is more prominent in teenagers. People who are in their adolescence are much more sensitive to the effects of light than adults. So, watching TV shows, playing video games can make awakening in the morning one of the hardest things for teenagers.
Science recommends that you turn off all devices with blue light for two hours before you go to the bed. Thus your body will start to release melatonin at appropriate times. You will notice, things will be very different after adaptation to this way of life, but you will have the best rest in bed.
