TURN YOUR PHONE OFF BY 10PM TO AVOID MOOD ISSUES

 

Using mobile phones after 10 p.m. can trigger depression and loneliness, says a new study.

People who spend the night checking social media, watching TV, or roaming around their homes are more likely to suffer from mood problems such as neuroticism and bipolar disorder. They are also more likely to rate themselves as unhappy and lonely.

While researchers can’t prove that disruption to the body clock causes these problems, they argue that it’s more evidence that modern life is scrambling our natural rhythms saying: “Daytime is time for activity and darkness is time for sleep.” Previous studies have linked shift work that disrupts the natural 24-hour cycle of the body to a range of long-term health problems.

A 10 p.m. cut-off would give the average adult time to wind down before bed.
