It’s super difficult to function properly in today’s society without a smartphone. You’d be missing out on too much. We also need to become more conscious of the health hazards associated with smartphone use. That is a huge step towards avoiding them. We will remind each other of these habits in this article. Let’s go.
Clean Your Phone Regularly
Many of us take our phones everywhere we go. It’s not hard to see how this contributes to a high microbial load. The one way to go about this healthily is to use alcohol wipes for periodic cleaning. Try not to take your phone to the toilet too.
Mind Your Neck
Bending your neck to text or browse is not very healthy. In no time, you’ll start having muscle spasms or even nerve pain. Try to hold your phone higher than usual when using it. Take regular breaks too. Stretch those neck muscles often too.
Don’t Text Or Talk While Driving
You can now use your phone without touching it when driving, but it doesn’t completely remove the danger. Driving requires maximum concentration, and the littlest distraction can be fatal. Please avoid smartphone use while going.
Take Caution With Blue Light
Prolonged screen time is not healthy. We view so many screens every day- smartphones, laptops, TV, e.t.c. When it gets dark outside, it’s best to limit screentime. It always helps you sleep better.
Keep Your Phone Away When You’re Not Using It
There’s not much evidence to support the harmful effects of smartphone radiation on health yet. However, there is still a lot we don’t know about so many things. A little caution never hurts. If you want to minimize your exposure to cell phone radiation, talk on the phone in speaker mode or use a headset. Keep your phone away at night when you sleep too.
Voicenotes are an amazing feature of many messaging apps that we should use more often. Excessive texting can lead to Trigger thumb, arthritis, and cubital tunnel syndrome, among others.
Hold Person-to-Person Convos More Often
Many of us are fond of this today. We rarely talk to people in person. When we’re in social gatherings, we’re all focused on our smartphones. It’s not very healthy for our relationships. Put your phone aside when interacting with others.
