Go Device Free to Sleep Better

You hit the bed at what you think is a reasonable time but are unable to sleep? Night after that, this pattern repeats itself, hitting your sleep.

And you know you need your 8 hours of zzzzzz. Continuing research has proved that sleep helps improve memory, curbs inflammation, spurs creativity, improves attention, helps lose weight, lowers stress and avoids depression.  A sound sleep lets you focus and increases productivity. Sleep-deprived people fail to recall pleasant memories, but are good at recalling glum moments.

So how can you ensure that your bed lets you snooze off in peace? One simple tip: Make it a device-free zone!

Recent research has shown that light-emitting devices (be it a tablet, phone or other glow-in-the-dark reader that shines a blue light) in the hours before bedtime can adversely affect sleep, alertness, and overall health.

It’s not clear why screen time disrupts sleep patterns, but researchers believe that it’s possible that the light from electronic devices interferes with the body’s internal clock, which controls the circadian rhythm. The devices could also stimulate the nervous system, making it difficult to fall asleep.

The use of electronics is integral to modern life, but ensure that you try to log off a while before bedtime to ensure a good night’s sleep. Switch to a real alarm clock, try keeping your phone away from your bed and read a real book or magazine to unwind. Respect your bed – it is a haven that’s meant for unplugging!

Sweet dreams!
