Suppression of melatonin by light at night resulting in circadian disruption has been implicated in sleep disturbances, increased risk for diabetes and obesity, as well as increased risk for more serious diseases, such as breast cancer, if circadian disruption occurs for many consecutive years, such as in nightshift workers.
Looks like i'm going to be obese, diabetic and possibly dead then. I've been using electronic devices well into the early hours of the morning almost consistently for more than 5 years. Oops.
Anyone have a link to the full study?
I've put my phone under my [censored]ow and set it to vibrate once before so I'd wake up when my friend texts me.
Yes it is.
I try to limit my electronics use 20-30 minutes before bed. My sleep is relatively undisturbed but when I hit the hay I'm out like a light.
True Story 😞 Sad Story
Yes.. Its making me obese and unfit
Yes... They are affecting my concentration too.. I just pick up my phone and just browse it for no reason... kind of an addiction :(
I am in control... its all a matter of self-control really
“What’s the worse that could happen?” Everyone says that
