6 Reasons Not To Use Your Phone In Bed At Night by Opinionated: 12:29pm On May 30, 2017
Many people now sleep with their phones in bed at night. This is an obvious sign of phone addiction that they dream about their devices. Unbelievable but true. This is not really good. So, before you get into your bed tonight, Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, urges you to check out these reasons not to use your smartphone in bed at night.

You will be unable to sleep

This is the most obvious reason why you should never use your phone in bed. You will never be able to sleep because of all the notifications that are disrupting and disturbing your sleep. Of course, you know that doctors recommend at least 8 hours of sleep daily. Your phone should be on silent if you really want to get a smooth and uninterrupted nap.

You can be depressed

Persons who use their phone more frequently are prone to moodiness and depression. Also, since you are unable to get proper sleep just because you cannot control your phone usage, you are simply making you vulnerable to depression.

You are damaging your eyes

Exposure to blue light at night, emitted by your phone can affect the eyes. And today, there are many smartphones that emit this light. To prevent dry eyes and blurred vision, allow your eyes to rest instead of surfing your phone.

You may experience nomophobia

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night and you are searching desperately for your phone which is just right beside you. And because you cannot find it, you begin to feel anxious and you become agitated. The only time you recover is when you eventually find your phone. It’s better to switch it off (if you want) and keep it as far away from you as possible.

Reduce exposure to radiation

Smartphones usually release a form of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation that can be absorbed if it is too near your body. The risk is limited when the phone is disconnected from either WiFi or turned off.

You pay more attention to your loved one

There is no gainsaying that you will concentrate and listen more if you do away with your phone in bed. So, make that decision to limit phone usage in bed at night.

Reasons why you should sleep with your phone.
1. While you work your ass up all day long, we control our clients at night.
2. Nothing can't amount to that joy, when you hear that notification alert and you realize you've just been paid. sleep will come naturally.
3. Money must be made before dawn, cause bills ain't gonna pay itself.

I'll have love to continue, but.... I'll be tag....

Nomophobia is a proposed name for the phobia of being out of cellular phone contact. It is, however, arguable that the word "phobia" is misused and that in the majority of cases it is another form of anxiety disorder. #GIYF

Thanks for educating them


Night was created for sleeping and not for activities.

My dad who is powerful than you all had to take a day off (sleeping) after staying up seven day with the work of creation.

The blue glaring light from your smartphone screen will disrupt your sleep.

If you must necessary use your phone at night, then use the inverse color setting on your mobile or download blue light filtering app.

sleeplessnes will age your body quickly, reduce your cognition, increase your susceptibility to different diseases and infection, makes your skin look bad....

yeild to the warning now. I dont want you blind or mentally deranged when you come to me.

I am comming soon and my....

Only 2 reasons make any sense there...

- The negative effect on the health of your eyes. You can reduce this by using blue light screen filter apps, or by ensuring your phone screen isn't the only light source in your room.

- Exposure to radiation, which isn't worse than having it close to you during the day.

The part about being depressed cos you use your phone in bed at night is speculative nonsense, as is each remaining reason.
