Good or bad: Do you switch your phone off while sleeping?

Here is a question you should ask some of your closest friends or family: Do you switch off your phone at night or do you keep it on?

You will find that most people do leave their phones on during the night.

Who on the Anele and the Club switches off their phone at night?

Anele Mdoda goes on to explain to the team that she never switches off her phone, and that should anything happen, she wouldn't want to waste time trying to switch the phone back on.

But I don't see a problem with that. I mean if we didn't have to be up so early, I think I would just switch my phone completely off. I don't see the harm in it.

I've never, even during exams in school, when they say 'switch off all your phones' I never did that.

Thembekile Mrototo

I don't ever switch off my phone and it's not on silent. It'll ring.

Frankie sleeps with his phone on silent at night and would rather have it buzzing.

The benefits of switching off your phone:

Stress reducing
Go offline once in a while - that helps to reduce your stress.

Battery charges faster
When you phone is off, it charges faster and more steadily, which leads to a longer battery life.

Better for the environment
The more your phone is on, the more you will need to charge it, and that leads to a reduction in its lifespan.
