The Reason You Shouldn’t Check Your Phone Before Sleep

You should not feel bad about checking your phone last thing before going to sleep. We are all guilty of doing so because of the need to constantly feel connected with our friends everywhere. Checking the phone has become a ritual for most of us, we go on Facebook, open our emails, and sometimes lose track of time and lots of sleep hours.

The blue light is also damaging to our health, especially in the late hours of the night.

But there are many other reasons why you should avoid checking your phone before going to bed.

Studies have revealed the fact that the blue light that comes from digital screens is affecting your brain and it is no longer producing melatonin, a hormone that helps your body get ready for sleep. You are thus sabotaging your own rest without being aware of it.

It took our bodies millions of years to understand the fact that the red light of the sunset is the signal to get ready to rest, while the light blue one of the sunrise means a new day is ahead of us.

Why confuse your body this way? Avoid the blue light of your screen and save up to 22% of melatonin.

Using your phone before going to sleep leads to bad sleep, insomnia and waking up exhausted the next morning.

Your brain is receiving mixed signals and the stress levels are growing because while your body understands it is about time to go to bed, your hormones are keeping it awake and alert. Your entire biological clock is disturbed.

A disturbed biological clock will increase the risk of diabetes and obesity, as well as breast cancer.

Neurotoxins that are accumulated over the day cannot be released other way than through a good night’s sleep, and intoxicating your body further will affect your memory and focus capacities.

Avoid the disease of the 21st century! Avoid checking your phone before sleep!
