5 reasons to turn off your smartphone
- Save electricity
We don’t need our mobile phones when we’re asleep. But most people still leave their smartphones and even Wi-Fi or Bluetooth on overnight. And even when we’re not using our mobile phones, they’re still transmitting signals – while draining the battery.
In addition, some apps are constantly running in the background without us noticing. And not just at night, but around the clock. This also drains the battery, meaning we have to charge our mobile phones much more often than is necessary. This in turn reduces the battery life and the life of the mobile phone itself.
Tip:switch off your smartphone overnight and only turn on Bluetooth when you need it. Put all of the apps you don’t use every day on standby (under ‘Settings’).
But it means we spend so much time on social media using features like post, like and share that the many beautiful moments we’re dying to capture for Instagram and Facebook simply pass us by.
Tip: simply get off social media, turn off your smartphone and really enjoy just being in the moment.
And if you have to turn off your phone to do that, it’s worth just leaving it off for a few hours to take some time offline. This allows the smartphone to ‘recover’ and also allows us to clear our heads and make time for the things that are good for us again, like doing yoga or reading a book – a paper one, of course.
This also includes messengers like WhatsApp and Signal, as well as tools like Microsoft Teams or Slack. And finally, there’s the classic – e-mail. So all of this means that our smartphone is constantly vibrating and beeping away, notifying us about new messages around the clock. But constant accessibility creates constant stress and doesn’t allow us to ever rest and just switch off.
Tip: switch off to switch off! Go without your smartphone in the evening – especially before going to bed – and switch it off completely at night, on weekends and when you’re on holiday.
Switching smartphones to flight mode isn’t that helpful because they still emit radiation and generate electrosmog. So, turn off your mobile phone as often as you can! It’s the only way to reduce radiation.
