3 Technology Habits to Help You Sleep

Sleep is essential for a healthy lifestyle. Let’s look at technology habits to help you sleep. You need seven or more hours of sleep per night, and if you are not getting enough, you might wake up feeling exhausted or struggle to get through your day. Healthy sleep habits can lower stress and improve your psychologic well-being. Unfortunately, modern technology can negatively impact sleep. Here are 3 ways to manage tech and get a better night’s sleep.

3 Technology Habits to Help You Sleep

  1. Move It. Falling asleep with your phone in your hand? Charge your phone overnight away from your bed, or better yet, in another room. If you use it as an alarm, get an old-fashioned alarm clock that won’t wake you with notifications and ringing.
  2. Dim It. Staring into the bright light of your phone can mess with your body’s natural Circadian rhythm and disrupt your sleep. Use a red filter app to reduce exposure and cut down on phone time at least an hour before bed.
  3. Block it! Put your phone on do not disturb to block all notifications while you are sleeping. Better yet, limit notifications in general and spend less time on your phone.

Old tech habits might be hard to break, but chances are you will not miss your phone as much as you think. You might also start to appreciate the feeling of a good night’s sleep!
