Besides, intense or frequent mobile phone usage is seen to be associated with a broad array of mental health related symptoms, behaviours, and psychological factors, according to a study from the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The time spent on devices takes time from other activities and health-related behaviours, such as physical activity, supportive social interactions, or staying on task at work or school. The study concludes that mobile phone content can generate higher levels of psychological stress and physiological arousal. Higher levels of arousal can have a negative impact on sleep and recovery and in other ways contribute to stress and ill health. The WHO has declared gaming addiction as a mental health disorder. Also, addiction to the game can increase the level of anxiety and depression. Playing too many games can make you socially isolated and can also lead to sleeping disorders. Adults start spending less time on other physical activities and also they deviate their mind from their career. Behavioural disorders can be seen in children and adults. As they focus so much in games they start behaving abnormally. Everyone should remember that real life is more interesting than virtual life.
