Let us know some of the reasons that prompt you to stop using electronic gadgets in the bedroom.

Reasons to keep phones out of the bedroom

There are several reasons that would compel you to ensure a technology-free bedroom. Some of them are mentioned below:

Delays your sleep

To get a quick scan of your Facebook profile or the need to remain connected at all times results in delaying the ideal time of sleep. This adversely impacts your body’s internal clock and gets readjusted every time. This results in the setting of the delayed sleep syndrome. If on any day you plan to sleep early so as to wake up early the very next morning, your body would not fall asleep as your internal body clock is scheduled for a later time.

Reduces productivity

Sleep is one of the main sources of energy. By constantly engaging your senses to the cell phones, you would suffer from dysfunctional sleep pattern. This problem negatively affects the level of energy in a person and reduces work productivity to a significant extent.  To provide a sound sleep not only you need to switch off your cell phones half an hour prior to going to bed, but also ensure that you have the right type of mattress.

A mattress helps in uniform placement of the body that assures complete relaxation of all the areas of the body including neck, hands, and spine, upper and lower back. Memory foam mattress is highly recommended type of mattress that ensures the most comfortable sleep.

High radiation exposure

We all know that technology functions through radiation. Whenever we are using any technological instrument, we are exposing ourselves to radiation of low, medium or higher intensity. These radiations are very harmful to the human body. It has been proved that people who keep their cell phones near to their pillow are exposed to a high range of radiations.

This directly impacts the brain and causes mind related disorders when done on a regular basis. Also, phones emit a specific type of non-ionizing radiation of electromagnetic nature that when absorbed by the tissues of the body leads to cancer and other severe body ailments.

When do you replace your mattress?

  • If you find body ache, numbness or stiffness at the time when you wake up then it is a possible indication that your mattress has got old and you need to replace it.
  • If you get allergies such as sneezing, coughing, sniffing in the morning then that could be due to the presence of critters or dust mites in the mattress.
  • If you feel lethargic all the day. It can happen if your mattress is not giving you the much-needed support and comfort required for a good sleep.
  • If you find that you get a good sleep everywhere except on your bed, then it is not comforting you. If you find any or all these indications, then it is the right time to say goodbye to your existing mattress and invest in a new one.

Keeping your phone near to your sleeping zone can invite a lot of problems. By implementing these ways, you can benefit by keeping them not only out of the bedroom, but also out of the bed.
