For this reason, leave your phone 2 or 3 meters away from the bed while you sleep

Mobile phone has become an indispensable accessory in people's daily life. Many users even take it to sleep at night. This action can create symptoms of hypervigilance for you, because by keeping your phone on at night, your subconscious mind tells itself that you are ready to answer a call, email or SMS.
A recent study by the National Institute of Statistics (INE) revealed that 80% of users keep their mobile phones at night. In other words, 8 out of 10 people sleep with their cell phones, and most of them are teenagers. Many use it to connect to social networks, check e-mail, or as an alarm clock. Whatever the reason, excessive use of cell phones can be dangerous to health.

According to WHO experts, most sleep disorders are associated with the use of mobile phones before bedtime. Mobile phones cause insomnia and, in most cases, nightmarish nights and headaches upon waking up, all because of this bad habit. Some people experience dizziness and nausea after using their phones at night.

-Reasons not to sleep next to your mobile phone

There are many health problems that can make you suffer by just having your mobile phone close to the bed at bedtime. Here are five reasons why you shouldn't sleep next to your phone.

- The mobile phone disturbs your sleep

Sleeping next to your mobile phone can interrupt your sleep due to the blue light it produces. This light stimulates the body and this leads to an increase in the heart rate, as well as a decrease in the production of melatonin which is the sleep hormone.

-It affects your health

Sleeping next to your mobile phone can have adverse health effects due to the radio frequencies it emits. Exposure to waves emitted from a smartphone increases the risk of developing cancer or a tumor, as confirmed by the World Health Organization.

-You are not allowed to have a free mind

Even if you don't receive messages every 10 minutes, having your mobile phone in bed can prompt you to surf the net or the Internet. So the best thing you can do is turn it off to free yourself.

-Disrupt your deep sleep by ringing in the middle of the night

One of the main reasons not to have your phone near you at night is because at any time while you are fast asleep, the sound of a message or a call can suddenly wake you up and disturb your sleep.

 -It contributes strongly to pressure

A study involving researchers from the Polytechnic University of Madrid linked excessive use of mobile phones to generating more anxiety and depression, in addition to increasing social isolation and stress.

In conclusion, there is a danger related to the habit of using the phone in bed, so it is recommended to keep the device 2 or 3 meters away from the bed and, if possible, in another room. You can avoid the dangers of sleeping with your mobile phone all night by changing this habit.
