You can observe that how many people, including yourself, take their mobile phones to bed, even if you are going to sleep. Many people are so obsessed with their mobile phones so they always keep their mobile phone near to their pillow. These gadgets are making us to give less and less time to sleep. Late night chatting or talking on the phone gives us nice feel, but it damages the sleep and ruins the freshness of the next day.
