These accidents can lead to serious injury, and death in some cases.

2) Lower attention span. By the time that you notice this happening, you will already have taken a major hit in your ability to concentrate and focus on one thing at a time, both in duration and intensity.

3) Spine and neck damage. When you use your smartphone excessively, your neck slouches forward and your shoulders end up rounding. This results in repetitive strain injuries and back pain, creating a condition known as ‘text neck’

4) Increased sleeping problems. The bright screens of your phone prevents the release of melatonin, and important chemical responsible for inducing deep sleep. You will have a harder time getting proper rest because you are too hyper active, or spend too much time on the phone.
