    Your mobile phone can be a great ally in your daily life, from buying the tickets of that concert that you have been waiting for, right up to bringing your favourite mobile casino to the palm of your hand. But it can also be harmful to your health.

    All day long, we’re inundated by interruptions and alerts from our devices. Smartphones buzz to wake us up, emails stream into our inboxes, notifications from coworkers and far away friends bubble up on our screens, and “assistants” chime in with their own soulless voices. These constant alerts jolt our stress hormones into action, igniting our fight or flight response; our heartbeats quicken, our breathing tightens, our sweat glands burst open, and our muscles contract. That response is intended to help us outrun danger, not answer a text from a colleague.

    The ubiquity of smartphones and the benefits they bring to our lives make it hard to consider living without them. So what can you do to balance the convenience with the health issues that come attached?
