2. Decreased Sleep Quality
Time magazine says that smartphones could cause something akin to a “hangover,” because we can’t detach from them in the time we should be letting our body and mind relax and recharge. Workaholics find it especially hard to put down the phone in case they miss a client email.
The article also notes that the light emitted from a smartphone can trick our bodies out of releasing less melatonin, our natural sleep hormone. That means it could be harder to fall asleep, and when we do it could be less restful sleep. That means you feel more like hitting the snooze button in the morning.
