The Exact Amount Of Time You Should Leave Between Looking At A Screen And Going To Bed

March 24, 2016 by Isabel Jones

On a regular week night, I fall asleep in one of two ways: laptop open, left mid-sentence on a word document, or to the sounds of my meowing house guests on Neko Atsume Kitty Collector (a.k.a. the best pointless app in the world). If you ask any healthcare professional (or pretty much anyone), they’d tell you that my pre-sleep habits are ALL WRONG. They are.

Engaging with the digital realm is basically the worst thing you could do before heading to bed. Not only does the digital “glow” hinder your ability to sleep, but it also affects your quality of sleep!

But don’t worry, you don’t have to move to Amish country in order to catch a few Zzzzs. The answer is simple, you just need to “disconnect” 15-30 minutes before you plan to go to sleep. Make your bedroom a strict no-technology zone during that brief pre-slumber period. If the buzz of a new email or text is too tempting to resist, try silencing your phone, or even turning it off. Take a few minutes before bed to reflect on the day, read a book (not online), ANYTHING that will get you away from that screen!
