1. Eye Tension
Maybe this is the danger that most people know after you hold the smartphone for too long. Quoted from CuriousMob, The Vision Councils 2005 Digital Eye Strain Report says that 37% of millennials spend at least 9 hours to view their smartphone. 7 out of 10 people, reported that they had eye strain such as dry eyes, irritation, redness, and even prolonged headaches, fatigue, and farsightedness.

When you bend, at exactly the 60 degree angle to see the smartphone, it's tantamount to incriminating your head sixfold. Because, it's because of increased pressure on your neck. This is the result of a study conducted from Kenneth Hansraj, M.D., Chief of Spine Surgery in New York Spine Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine. The bone pads are shifted when one of the discs that sit between the spine is damaged and end up pressing on the nerve.
Surely it is very painful. Fortunately, there is a simple way to prevent that. You just need to improve your posture. You should always work with your head upright, your ears are above your shoulders, and your chest looms ahead.
Amy Cuddy, PhD. as well-known researchers say that such postures will stimulate the production of testosterone which will help to increase self-confidence, even in adverse situations. But, you also do not stubborn. You are not allowed to hold the phone for that long. If you have to hold the phone, use the smartphone by holding it straight ahead, without making the neck down.
3. Premature AgingA dermatologist in Beverly Hills, Stuart H. Kaplan, M.D., claims that many younger patients are now asking for Botox treatment to overcome the early wrinkles that result from seeing the phone for too long. He said that this happens because the skin is tangled and happens repeatedly, as you often bend the neck to check for notifications or reply to a message on a cell phone. It may sound casual, but with time as you often do it, it's a scary thing is not it?
To avoid this negative effect, you just need to stop spending all day looking at the phone, and let your neck relax. Doing Yoga can also help you loh. Yoga will help you lengthen the neck and muscles on the shoulders, strengthening the upper back and back of the neck. In addition, Yoga will also help smooth on the skin fold excessive, though not completely back.
