Gadgets have become an integral part of every person’s life. Leafing through your Instagram feed or watching your favorite TV series before going to bed is a favorite activity of modern man. Have any of you ever thought about the effect of your gadgets on your sleep?

Here are a few reasons why you should give up spending the evening with the phone in your hands:

1. Screen light reduces the production of melatonin, which regulates the cycle of waking and sleeping. Have you ever noticed that if you’ve looked at all of Instagram the night before, you have a hard time waking up in the morning? Think about it.
2. The brain works 24 hours a day, seven times a week. And when you’re watching a movie or scrolling through social media, too. Trust me, the best solution for your brain outside of work time is to simply put away your devices and rest without them.

Scientists recommend being more vigilant about your sleep and wakefulness patterns. This will make you healthier, and your body systems won’t be overly stressed.
