(HealthDay News) --If you keep a smartphone on your nightstand and take a peek just before bed, you may be jeopardizing your sleep.
The National Sleep Foundation offers these suggestions:
- Fight the urge to check your smartphone at bedtime. It can lead to stress and getting too energized just before bed.
- Keep the phone away from your bed while you sleep, either in another room or at least in a place where you can't reach it from bed. The light, buzzing and beeping can distract you.
- Set a "technology curfew" at least an hour before bedtime.
- Get an actual alarm clock so you don't have to use your phone.
