Abstract


The researcher has intended to understand and predict the sleep cycle changes due to the usage of smartphone which impacts the psychological changes for an individual. The researcher has applied ethnographic research and life history along with observation of the changing characteristics of the individual. Importantly, the samples’ psychological health has accounted. The sleep cycle has a positive and negative impact of one’s behaviour that has identified and noted from the samples during observation. This study has outlined to make an ethnographic and observation on various sample behaviour changes due to the same impact based on the secondary data the researcher has shortlisted the areas to be focused. The plan was carried on by collecting life histories of the samples and also an observation on the characteristic changes during the whole process; ethnographic research helped the researcher in knowing how an individual feel and what are the changes has experienced by them, inclusive of the emotional imbalance. The study has ended with the understandings of that as an adult is the responsibility of the individual to take care of the psychological health along with the physical health. It would help them to have a proper behavioural and emotional balance when they keep a proper track on the sleep cycle despite the addiction to smartphone usage. The usage of the Smartphone is predicted to be quite dangerous including the radiation and also the rays exposed by them.
