Do you check Facebook before going to bed?

The next time you think about checking your emails before you go to bed, or making one more Facebook updates to wrap up a busy day – you may want to think again.

Research shows the blue light given off by electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops upsets melatonin levels, which can affect your ability to fall asleep.

Developing a regular routine before going to bed is a great way to prepare your body to sleep and a great suggestion to help this is to put your mobile devices away at least an hour before bed time. And, as previously reported on this blog, turn devices off because the noises and electromagnetic radiation can have impacts on us without us being consciously aware of them.

Sleep tight! 🙂

Thanks to Amy Corderoy’s article in The Age, titled: Sleep cycles disrupted by electronic devices for bringing this tip to the fore.
