Do you go to bed and wake up with your tech gadgets? Raise your hand…. *I sense a lot of hands going up slowly but surely* LOL
Do you feel anxious if you aren’t near your phone? If you’ve left your phone at home, would you go ALL the way back home to get it because your day would be emotionally and physically ruined otherwise? *I sense more hands staying up*
Well, you need to read this!
Previously, in relation to this very topic, we showed via another infographic how some people will give up sex for their cell phone (really??? yes, it’s true…) and then discussed how you can get a better night’s sleep by not having the snooze button as your best friend.
Now, we have another good one – this time about how sleeping with your technology gadgets can be keeping you from getting a good night’s rest! That’s right folks, “New studies show that not only are most people sleeping with their smartphones in the bed with them, they’re also struggling to sleep well, even if they don’t realize it,” via OnlinePsychologyDegree.net. The site also cites that, “Light from your gadgets suppress sleep-inducing melatonin.”
Yep, some of you need to say NO to the gadget in the bed. I know it’s hard but maybe you can talk to it a little bit until you’ve weaned yourself from its presence so that you can do your body some good. 🙂
Maybe the first night, move it a little bit further away from you.
The next night, don’t look at your gadget 30 minutes prior to bed.
And so forth until you’re comfortable without it being in the same room and not feel so anxious.
Ok, let me stop talking and let you learn more from the infographic…enjoy!
