2 Ways your Smartphone affects you
People are addicted to their phones says a hypnotherapist who is also an anxiety expert and an author. We get addicted to the dopamine service we experience with every new piece of information or news story that is send to us via email. Being tied up to our phones indicate that we never really relax. Therefore, it is not surprising that excessive smartphone usage has a direct connection with anxiety.
Poor sleep is a common physical symptom of anxiety. At the same time, most of us use our smartphone as an alarm clock. That means your phone is next to you before you go to sleep and when you wake up - making it incredibly tempting to watch your phones before bedtime and then again when you open your eyes. Do you think that you will be on a good way to start or end your day by reading a stressful work email or comparing yourself with that blog writer's selfie? I do not think so.
Break off, shake or mess your phone every time someone answers a Facebook post or follows you on Instagram. It may be time to turn off your notifications. You will feel less disturbed and overwhelmed by the amount of incoming traffic. Endless notifications may make someone at some point happy, but it is believed that people suffering from anxiety have an increased sensitivity to noise.
