A lot of people, and teenagers in particular, stay up late at night, checking whatsApp, watching videos and posting on socials.
Those people are called “vampers”, because they don’t sleep all night, just like a vampir.
“Vamping” is dangerous. It causes stress and makes you feel anxious when in the morning you have to get up and start your day.
View that it is really difficult don’t check your phone when you hear the “bip” of a message, the best thing to do is to put your mobile on silent mode or better to switch off it before going to bed.
Scientists say that even the blue light of the screen is dangerous, because it stops the production of melatonin, a hormone that makes us feel sleepy.
No message is so importante that we can’t wait until morning to read it and we should chat to our friends or play videogames during the day and not at night.
I know it is difficult to do so, I’m a teenager and I like social media too, but we have to reflect about what is better for us.
At school we often talk about the dangers of vamping and I force myself to leave my phone out of the bedroom when I go to sleep so to avoid any temptation.
