If you are sleeping with your phone under your pillow or just out of reach on a night stand, you are like the 45% of cell phone owners who need to have their mobile devices close at hand. The reasons for this are numerous, falling asleep while waiting for a call or text, using as an alarm clock, fear of missing a text message, or waiting for someone to post on their social media profile page. Although many head off to bed with the best of intentions, the simple truth is that keeping your cell-phone turned and near you while you try to sleep can be hazardous to your health. Consider these harms of sleeping near your cell-phone.


There are two ways: first, turn it off and leave it in the usual place (on the nightstand), keeping in mind that you must use a different alarm clock. The second is to leave it on but place it in a distant room, such as the kitchen or living room. This alternative is less desirable. And if you do not feel comfortable turning off the phone in case someone needs to communicate with you during the night in an emergency, you can at least turn off the Internet or WiFi connection, which is more dangerous than the radio waves. Experts recommend that the cell phone should be at least three feet away from the body during sleep. We can leave it, for example, on the couch or on a chair.

Another issue to keep in mind, and one that many do, is that you should not leave your cell phone charging overnight while you have it under your pillow. There are many cases of people who have burned their face or hands due to an overload and subsequent fire inside their devices. Most pillows are made of a material which combusts very quickly and this puts us in great danger while we sleep because we are not aware of what is happening around us.

Another risk that is also related to leaving the cell phone on the bedside table is that it increases our anxiety levels, we are constantly alert and expectant of what may happen all the time, we wake up in the middle of the night to check our e-mail or social networks each time we get a notification, etc. This is a change in behavior and habits that eventually results in stress, insomnia, poor concentration, cognitive problems, lack of productivity, irritability, nightmares, headaches, etc.

Other "healthier" habits when using your cell phone

-Keep the calls short and if they are extended, change ears every few minutes.
-If possible, place calls with the “hands-free” system to avoid having it next to your head.
-Do not let children use the cell phone, even as a toy.
-Do not talk on your smartphone in an area where the signal is weak because the devise will have to issue more powerful radio waves.
-Do not carry your cell phone on your body (men especially should not put it in the pocket of their pants) and avoid contact with your skin.
-Keep it away even just a couple of feet while on your desk or table.

It is therefore necessary to allow our cell phone to rest a little and we can take a break from it. During the night, we should dedicate ourselves to sleep and rest, to recharge our batteries that we have spent all day. It is better for the cell phone to stay off until we get up (if we can stand the temptation) or until we leave home for work.

In this way, we avoid imbalances in the neuronal level, in our quality of sleep and stress levels. The results of the studies on this issue are still not entirely clear, although what has been made available to us is enough to sound the alarm. And do not forget that the other appliances you have at home can also be harmful to your health. Try not to have televisions or computers in your bedroom. If you already have them, you can unplug them before bedtime, for example. Turn off the router when you go to bed and try not to use the cell phone up until the last moment before closing your eyes.
