WHY YOU SHOULD UNPLUG BEFORE BED ?
Did you know that completely disconnecting can help you fall asleep more quickly and enjoy a better night of sleep? Many people struggle to turn off their smartphones and other electronic devices before they head to bed each night.
When you begin completely unplugging before you go to bed you`ll automatically begin getting more sleep each night because you won't find yourself distracted for hours by social media, while you should really be sleeping. When you're not being woken up by smartphone notifications, you'll also enjoy improved sleep quality, which will leave you feeling more energized and refreshed when you wake up.
Of course, getting accustomed to not using electronics before bed isn't easy for everybody. The best way to learn how to sleep better and transition to a new routine is to do it gradually. Start by shutting off all your electronics 10 minutes before bed, then work your way up to a half hour, an hour, or even two hours. If you're afraid you'll give into the temptation of having your devices in the same room where you're sleeping, consider keeping your phones stored in a separate room while you're sleeping. Just make sure you've got an "old-school" alarm clock to wake you up in the absence of your smartphone.
There are plenty of activities you can partake in before bed that will be conducive to helping you fall asleep peacefully. Consider making a habit of allowing yourself to read a book for a half-hour before bed, or take some time to reflect on your day by writing in a journal. Find your inner peace in both body and mind by completing a short meditation session, or listening to some soothing music. It`s hard, but you will love the results.
