_CONSTANT USAGE OF PHONE LATE AT NIGHT!!!!!...and why you should always use the options within your phone like *NIGHT MODE/DARK MODE* and do not disturb to minimize distractions and notifications that can help get you in the mood to snooze if you’re really struggling with limiting screen time before bed,_
🕊️ The blue light emitted by your smartphone is bad for your vision. But it can be bad for your sleep, too.
🕊️ Melatonin is a hormone responsible for controlling your sleep-wake cycle. When your body runs low on it, you can experience insomnia, tiredness during the day and irritability.
🕊️ Doomscrolling, can distract you, which keeps you awake, stimulates your brain and delays REM sleep. In fact, when your brain revs up, it can keep you awake for hours beyond your normal bedtime.
🕊️ It keeps your mind engaged: Even seeing something right before bed that makes you happy or sad can trigger a response that prolongs falling sleep, which consequently delays REM sleep. These emotions can leave you staring at the ceiling for hours, feeling wide awake.
🕊️ THE LIGHT from your phone screen can have an impact. The blue light from your phone is an artificial color that mimics daylight. This can be great during the day, as it can make you feel more alert, but it’s just the opposite of what you need at night when you’re winding down and ready to hit the hay.
🕊️ Exposure to blue light can affect your internal body clock and throw off your circadian rhythm. This rhythm is in tune with light and dark. It’s why you feel more tired at night when the sun starts to set and why you feel more energized in the morning when it’s light.
YOUR HEALTH, YOUR STRENGTH.
