One of the biggest issues faced in this smartphone era is nothing but Insomnia. This is a term that would be familiar to all. This can be defined as the “difficulty getting to sleep or sleeping long enough to feel refreshed”.

Spending more and more time each day with our smartphones can affect the quality of sleep we are getting each day. Stats have revealed that almost 95% of the people use a smartphone just before bed, or even on the bed. Looking at the screen before bedtime would disrupt your bedtime routine. This would also teach your brain that the bed is for work, play and many other things, instead of sleep. The blue light from the screen of smartphones could mimic sunlight when it hits our eye, telling the brain that it is daytime and not the time to sleep.

There are many adverse effects that insomnia can have on our health. Let us check what are the effects of insomnia on health:

  • Weakened Immune System - Healthy immune system is key to our healthy living. If our immune system is weak, we would fall ill and have many other problems. To keep our immune system strong and healthy, we should sleep well and better.
  • Memory Impairments - When we sleep comfortable and better, our body and brain would get a chance to consolidate and connect information that has been gained throughout the day. Sleep deprivation would affect both short-term and long-term memory.
  • Depression - If a person isn’t sleeping properly, they would experience fluctuations in mood. Cases of chronic insomnia can lead to more severe symptoms of depression and anxiety.
  • Trouble Concentrating - Sleep deprivation would also cause difficulties to focus and concentrate on a task. Insomnia can make activities such as driving or operating machinery much more dangerous.
  • Poor School Performance - If kids and teens are deprived of proper sleep, it would make them face more difficulty in processing and retaining information.
  • Lethargy - Kids are much active and it keeps them healthy. Kids with a sleep-deprived body would find it much hard to to get outside and run around. This would lead to lethargy and laziness.

These are some of the ways in which insomnia would adversely affect the life of a person, be it a kid, teenager or adult. It is therefore important that all people get an adequate amount of sleep, according to their age group. In this smartphone era, teach your brain that the bed is only for sleep and no other activities, by keeping your smartphone aside before sleeping.
