Let me guess, you will go to bed, “because you’re tired,” and then turn to your phone and scroll aimlessly for too long. Most of us do this because we cannot fall asleep immediately, but using your phone in bed will just postpone the time you sleep. Do you know that cell phones’ bright light can make your brain believes it is still in the day? Change your habits, and decide you won’t bring your cell phone in bed any more.

Communication

The most amazing thing phones bring us may be how they can connect us to our relatives on the other end of the world, at any time of the day. However, it seems we forgot how important the communication with friends right around us is. Being busy checking social media, or reading/sending a message, we spend just too little time with people in front of us. It is true that sometimes you need to check the news, but when you’re in a restaurant or meeting with a friend or family member, keep the phone in your bag or pocket,and talk more.
