Smartphones May Hinder a Good Nights Sleep WEDNESDAY, Nov. 9, 2016 (HealthDay News) If you’re in need of a good night’s sleep, it might be wise to give your smartphone a rest from time to time. New research suggests that the light from smartphones, especially before bedtime, may affect how long and well you sleep.

But, several prior studies have suggested that the blue light from electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets can overstimulate the brain, making a good night’s sleep elusive. “These data. Smartphones make it easier than ever to be connected to the Internet at every waking moment. While that might make you feel like you’re always on top of things, that 24/7 connection to technology is actually unhealthy when you’re trying to fall asleep.

Smartphones and tablets can make for sleep-disrupting bedfellows. One cause is believed to be the bright light-emitting diodes that allow the use of mobile devices in. Other research (PDF) has shown that the blue light emitted by smartphones (and other digital devices) might suppress our body’s production of melatonin, a hormone. Here’s what happens: Using TVs, tablets, smartphones, laptops, or other electronic devices before bed delays your body’s internal clock (a.k.a., your circadian rhythm), suppresses the release of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin, and makes. The blue light emitted by screens on cell phones, computers, tablets, and televisions restrain the production of melatonin, the hormone that controls your sleep/wake cycle or circadian rhythm.

Reducing melatonin makes it harder to fall and stay asleep. Most Americans admit to using electronics a few nights a week within an hour before bedtime. The blue light emitted by smartphones and tablets simulates daylight, inhibiting the brain’s production of melatonin, the hormone that helps us fall asleep and stay asleep.

  • I sleep with no phone usage yet I always sleep at 2:00 am but if I do use it I sleep at 12:00am (i get into bed at 11:00) I save TWO HOURS OF TRYING TO GO TO SLEEP OKAY

  • I mean how many times have u dozed off while being on the screen and yeah it may ruin your schedule but shouldn’t humans just sleep when they want it’s only gonna make you awake when you don’t wanna sleep. PS DONT SUCK IT UP!!!

  • I fall asleep watching YouTube or Netflix usually at 9 or 10pm every night. When I was without a device to play these things on for 2 weeks I slept exactly the same every night so I don’t understand how it affects my sleep. I sleep the same regardless.

  • My biggest fear when clicking on this video is that it would not understand what electromagnetic radiation is and make misinformed points. And the. My fears where confirmed on 3:25. Do phones emit Electromagnetic radiation, yes. You know what else is? Tv’s, radios, celestial bodies in space, radio towers, that light coming out of your window, all light sources, all things that emit heat(including you), etc. If this radiation is deadly then we would all be dead by now. Or maybe there is a lot more to it. You see all this confusion can be answered by understand the electromagnetic spectrum. The electromagnetic spectrum is a scale used to measure the different types of electromagnetic radiation, or more commonly called, electromagnetic waves. The further the type of wave is on the spectrum, the more “deadly” it is. However, even the top three most “deadly” waves(ultraviolet,x-rays, and gamma rays) can be harmless if the wave is not that intense and/or there is barley any exposer to it. Phones do not emit anything close to the three most dangerous electromagnetic waves. Phones emit radio waves witch are all the way at the bottom of the spectrum, so it is very unlikely that anyone would have any bad reactions to radio waves. The radio waves emitted by phones have a very low intensity, making it even less likely that anything bad would happen. However, we do have a lot of exposer to radio waves, however, we are constantly being bombarded by radio waves from a lot of other sources so not sleeping with your phone would not make much of a difference. Furthermore, the human race has been bombarded by radio waves for a long time. Many things in space emit radio waves, so if a large amount of radio waves did not kill all of are ancestors, I doubt they would kill all of us today. Pls do your research next time.

  • Brilliant, we run a research and the finding was crystal clear: 99% of people still use their phone as an alarm clock, affecting negatively the quality of their sleep. The solution a SILENT, tech-free clock https://bagby.co/collections/silent-alarm-clocks

  • This all makes sense, but what about different kind of lights that are good before bedtime? For instance, if I want to read, is there a good type of light for this that will not cause negative side effects?

  • I sleep at 1 am and woke up at 8 am sometimes I woke up at 6 am cuz my mind thinks I have school but it’s the holidays:v
    My brother on the other hand…. He sleeps at 3 am or 4 am like… WHAT!?

  • What if you reduced the brightness on your phone and after a while you get sleepy and you fall asleep?

    The thing is I fall asleep quicker when I have my phone with me than when I don’t have it, insomnia and stuff

  • Very useful information. ♥
    I’ll try to shut off my phone before 10:30, although I know it may take some time to build this habit and implement it.

    Lets see.

  • It’s not just the blue light that affects sleep, its the internet. its too much information in brain, internet use keeps brain active and stimulant which is the last thing you want before going to bed. so don’t think using blue light filter will solve the problem. cut off internet and all electronics 1 hour prior to bedtime instead read some book or brush your teeth or things like that.

  • And how I can have access to music If I love listening to music in my Phone. I have just a small piano. Now that being in my Phone 24/7 hours became an habit it’s difficult to left the phone

  • I go to watch my phone to sleep for 1 hour. I sleep for 8 or 7 hours. Its my natural time and I don’t do it for like 3 hours only 1

  • Well i do the same thing but i usually i use my phone to listen to music for sleeping and set my phones brightness level to the lowest and turn the screen upside down and then look up at the ceiling. Close my eyes. Relax. And then… i wake in the morning feeling well rested.

  • I was going to type the exact same thing but i realized ut has more than 300 likes so I knew i had no chance of typing the same thing and getting as many good likes��

  • I have done this for 2 years every day, it’s like part of my routine, however unless it’s a weekend I usually only stay up until 10:00 10:30 but I want to stop but I don’t know how because I can’t sleep otherwise. Anyone got any advice? XD

  • For me, cellphone is very useful for me related in sleeping. Cellphone makes me asleep while using it at night, it makes me drowsy at night that makes me wanna sleep.

  • i was about to type a comments but i forgot what is was going to type bc it was talking abt typing during nighttime, but it’s technically morning soooo

  • my teacher is making me watch this and-
    i watched this years ago while i was having an obsession watching this videos
    yes
    if ur reading this Hi Mr. Chris or classmates:D

  • You know the main cause of insufficient sleep? “NIGHTMARES”��. I have this a lot and trying to get less sleep. I hate it. I don’t want nightmares.

  • I was asking my self why i cant sleep those past days and i found randomly this bc i look at yours videos i am going to try tonight to put my phone away and go to sleep after those 30 min 😉
