3 Ways Your Cell Phone Harms Your Health

3 Ways Your Cell Phone Harms Your Health

Is your wellness routine cellphone proof?

While most of us can’t live without our mobile devices for keeping up with work, family, and the rest of the world, recent studies are beginning to draw attention to the negative impact of these devices on our health and well-being.

Because cellular technology is still relatively new, we are only just beginning to understand the long-term effects of our scrolling habits. However, these new findings are worth paying attention to. Here are a few things to know about the pitfalls of too much screen time and how you can prevent problems associated with poor phone habits.

  • Eye strain, stress, and fatigue 1

    While our phones are helpful for so many things, they are, unfortunately, rather hard on the eyes. If you’ve ever squinted to read the fine print on a small phone screen, you may already be familiar with the ways in which phones force the eyes to work harder to see. Experts say that over time, cell phones contribute heavily to conditions like eye strain, blurred vision, headaches, and other related stress. Additionally, according to research, our eyes are not naturally good at blocking the blue light emitted by devices, and this means that the corneas get a lot of potentially damaging exposure on a repeated basis.

    Product Pick for Prevention:

    For supporting better eye care with protection against UV and blue light damage, Hush & Hush’s TimeCapsule supplement for age management contains a unique ingredient called Polypodium Leucotomos. Studies show that this super ingredient can help reduce the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation from sun exposure, cell phones, and computer screens.

  • Germ and bacteria buildup 2

    One surprising way cell phones can be harmful is their tendency to harbor harmful germs and bacteria. If you think about it, we spend a lot of time touching our phones, which also touch a lot of surfaces. In fact, one recent study found that e.coli could be detected on the surface of one 1 in every 6 phones. If not regularly cleaned the bacteria on your phone can be transferred to your skin. You may even experience more breakouts if you regularly touch your phone to your face without cleaning it first.

    Product Pick for Prevention:

    If you regularly struggle with congested skin, acne, or breakouts, Hush & Hush’s SkinCapsule CLEAR+ has an herbal complex of six different skin-balancing ingredients, plus a special breakout fighting complex with Vitamin A, zinc, and selenium.

  • Loss of body balance and precious sleep 3

    One more concern linked to too much phone time is the consequence of blue light exposure in disrupting sleep, energy levels, and even hormone balance. Experts say that blue light can be incredibly stimulating, meaning it can increase alertness and provoke the body’s stress responses. Too many stress hormones can make it more difficult for the body to rest and complete important sleep cycles. Inadequate sleep is the root of many health issues, so it’s a good idea to limit nighttime phone use if you want to avoid insomnia.

    Product Pick for Prevention:

    If getting enough rest and relaxation is your challenge, MindYourMind is Hush & Hush’s formula for improved sleep and stress support. This unique sleep supplement is melatonin-free and designed to help you keep calm, reduce mental chatter, and sleep deeper.
