According to a recent study in the journal Psychology of Popular Media Culture, putting aside your cell phone can yield great results as constant use of it can be disruptive to your sleep patterns as the more people texted during the day the poorer their sleep was., the Huffington Post reported.

Texting during the time spent with loved ones can prevent full engagement and your divided attention could keep you from what's truly important.

Chris Cornett, an orthopedic surgeon and spine specialist said that constant messaging can harm your body posture as people get so focused on these devices that they end up holding their neck and upper back in abnormal positions for a long period of time which leads to postural pain.

Texting while driving and even while walking on the street can be very dangerous as 18 percent of "distraction"-related deaths are associated with cell phone use.
