Limited use of smartphone is good for health

Smartphones have become an integral part of our lives. However, excessive consumption can adversely affect you by causing you psychological and physical confusion. If the use of the phone is reduced, its immediate better effects are revealed.

A report published in the Journal of Experimental Biology states that we spend an average of three hours a day looking at our phones. Apart from chatting, these include checking email, watching videos, posting on social media, and more. Experts have said that excessive use of smartphones leads to obesity, laziness, inactivity, neck pain, and addiction.


This is the reason why smartphones are useful on one hand and can be a nuisance on the other. Dr. Julia of Ruhr University in Germany and her colleagues have conducted a survey in this regard. Spending a day without a phone can have benefits, she says. If this is not possible, try to reduce the duration of using the phone.

His team recruited over 600 people and divided them into three groups. One group gave up cell phones for an entire week, another reduced use to one hour per day, and a third group continued using phones unchanged.

All these people were asked questions and questionnaires were also filled out. However, daily routines of life were also discussed. Then one month later and four months later they were asked to fill out the questionnaires. Questionnaires asked about exercise, smoking, stress or symptoms, anxiety, and other factors.


It had obvious effects. People who did not completely give up their phones but reduced their usage by an hour saw positive effects. That is, if you use the phone excessively, reduce this period and start with an hour less. This will have a positive effect on your personality.

Another important finding is that people who reduced their phone use by an hour had long-lasting positive effects on their personalities. You don't have to give up using the phone completely, but reduce the time you use it.
