Effects of Sleeping With Your Phone in Bed

It's usually a good idea to have your phone close by when you wake up. You might just pick it up and browse your preferred social media pages. Great! Unfortunately, sleeping next to your phone might have negative effects on your body, such as reducing the amount of important hormones produced, according to healthline.

Because of the radiation it emits, it endangers our health. Mobile phones typically generate radiation as a result of their 900 MHz transmission signal.

Because of this, using a cell phone while keeping it close to your head for an extended amount of time can cause headaches, muscle soreness, and other serious health problems. It is recommended that you turn off or put your phone away from you.

Particularly for young people, sleeping with their phones close by has become standard. In most cases, keeping the phone under the pillow seems to be the ideal choice because it's simple to access when the phone calls or you want to converse.

But this might be dangerous. It has been established that smartphones generate harmful radiation that alters some self-regulating processes, including our biological clock and heartbeat.

Because of this, sleeping with your phone nearby can cause nightmares, difficulty falling asleep, frequent nighttime awakenings, etc. In actuality, it might impair your brain.

Furthermore, sleeping next to your phone can impair your body's physiological processes and reduce the amount of important hormones that are needed for your usual routine.

According to the World Health Organization, electronic devices are generally harmful to the body since they have hazardous byproducts that can raise the risk of cancer development.

And to back up this assertion, a study conducted in Australia found a strong link between male sterility and smartphone use, as well as a decline in sperm quality.


1. It could set your pillow on fire

A certain percentage of smartphone users are so fixated on them that they sleep with them even under their pillows. This behavior has resulted in instances of pillows being set on fire, according to healthline.

The incident from July 2014 when a teen from Texas awoke to a burning scent is the most well-known example of this. Her Samsung Galaxy S4, which was kept under her pillow, set fire to her blanket and mattress.

Therefore, it is advised to turn off or put your phone in flight mode to reduce electromagnetic radiation


2. It puts your health at risk due to emitted radiation

Mobile phones typically generate radiation as a result of their 900 MHz transmission signal. So, using your phone while keeping it close to your head for an extended amount of time might result in headaches, backaches, and other serious health problems.


3. It could prevent you from sleeping

Cell phones, tablets, TVs, and other electronic devices with LED screens emit a blue light. According to healthline, bright light disrupts circadian rhythms and prevents the creation of the hormone melatonin, which promotes sleep.

Although the cause of this has not yet been determined, it may be because blue light emits wave lengths that are comparable to those of daylight, tricking our bodies into believing that it is daytime even when it is not.
