Technology is Hurting Your Sleep
February 22, 2016
One of the things that you can do right now, which will improve your sleep is remove technology from your life just 30 minutes to 1 hour before you go to bed. You’ll find in very short order that the technology you are using is causing you to be more aroused and anxious than if you were to turn off these devices. Although a quick check of the cell phone before going to bed isn’t the worst thing in the world, you probably want to make sure that you are getting rid of the technology as best as you can.
Some people wait for hours at night sitting on the computer watching videos and continually finding things to keep them busy. While it seems like a good idea at a time, in reality it is not something that is good for your health. Sleep is important and even if you are sleeping fine after using technological products, you are going to find a better sleep quality when you don’t.
For some people, this means that you need to just put down the cell phone and for others it means putting away every piece of technology that might distract your attention. Some people even like to put on glasses called “blue blockers” which will remove the light from certain wavelengths late at night. This helps to regulate the hormones a little bit more effectively so that you aren’t struggling with your sleep.
No matter what, getting improved sleep quality is going to be a big benefit for you. If you are tired of waking up groggy and wishing you had a few more hours (no matter how much you slept!) then this is one of the best options that doesn’t cost a dime.
