No Screen Sleep

Bluelight bad for sleep! The natural cycle tells us when to sleep and when to wake up, but the blue light from the electronics confuses our brain when it needs to rest. Because electronic devices are all around us, its hard to avoid their blue light. We use the screens constantly which then affect our eyes, our sleep pattern and our health. Normally the body’s pineal gland releases melatonin in the hour of going to bed. But due to the screening and the blue light, it becomes difficult for us to fall asleep. Hence, you should curfew your screen using the time to 2 hours before bed.

Screen time in the hours just before bed is problematic in a number of ways other than just hindering the sleep time. When we are engaged on the screen, for example, exciting video games, t.v. shows or even conversations can lead the brain to the release of hormones such as adrenaline. This is more difficult to fall a sleep.

The amount of screen time is directly associated with reduced sleep quality, and this seems to be an issue which does not seem to subside easily. You should limit your screen time and not use screen at all 2 hours prior to going to bed. Make your bedroom electronic free for a better sleep environment. To start from, start reducing your screen time and keep the brightness low in the phone making it darker helps you wind down.

There are bonus points for not being behind the screen, the major one apart from being healthy and sleeping good is you become more social and creative. Once you get off your screen you sit with an empty mind so you think more creative and interact.
