Are you so addicted to your smartphone that you wake up at night to check your Facebook or emails? If you do so you are not alone but mind you, this is not healthy.
A consultancy firm in Deloitte has issued research saying many people wake up in the middle of the night to check their Facebook, Emails, and WhatsApp messages on their smartphones.
A survey of 4,000 people revealed that 50% of young people aged 18-24 check their smartphones in the middle of the night and 14% of those over 65 years of age do so.
These smartphones are addictive and they have changed the way we live and sleep, the addictive use of phones changes the sleep pattern, and the blue light displayed by the phones affects the body clock.
The study also says that smartphone usage starts from the time people wake up in the morning, 52% of people say they check their phones within 15 minutes of getting up.
