Every year that passes, technology advances, and with it, the lifestyle is transformed, turning people’s environment into spaces where there is a lot of stress, anxiety, and high levels of worry, which generates consequences in the body including insomnia.
However, this current problem being faced by millions of people around the world and can be solved by changing some habits. Psychologist Shi Hui, in an interview with Health Huanqiu, recommends stopping using smart devices before bed because the light from the screens is capable to interfere with melatonin secretion in the body, preventing sleep.
