    You should not sleep next to your phones, because it is dangerous for your physical and mental health. You physical health can be affected because sleeping next to your phones can cause cancer but your mental health can also be affected by staying focused on the phones and waiting for notifications. As a result, I do not sleep next to my phone and after time, it becomes normal.

    It depends, but I usually have my phone close by to where I'm sleeping. The times when I'm right next to it, is when I fall asleep while doing something on my phone. It's usually the first bright screen I see in the morning, and last one I see at night. Only time will tell if any side effects come out of it as a result.

    I used to sleep next to my phone, but not anymore. My mind is often loud and constantly running, making it difficult for me to fall asleep, so to help with that issue I slept with my phone under my pillow playing podcasts to distract my mind and help me fall asleep way faster. I've recently found some other solutions to this issue, for example reciting songs, reading, doing mental math, or just counting myself to sleep, so I've stopped keeping my phone under my pillow and now keep my phone across my room. Keeping my phone far away has also helped me to wake up more easily, since I need to actually get up to turn off my alarm.
