Loads of people find themselves sleeping with their phones, myself included. It could be a major case of FOMO, mindless scrolling on social media, or that latest Netflix series.
Spent the night tossing and turning? Had your phone fall right on your face? Your phone might be the reason for this. I'm sure you've heard this well-intended advice that the key to a good night's sleep is to avoid using your phone before you sleep. Have you ever wondered about the science behind that ever resounding statement?
True enough, there is a correlation between using your phone in bed and the amount of sleep you actually get.
Using our handphones late at night has made us an unknowing accomplice to the very thing that has been robbing us of our well-deserved rest. Blue light exposure, emitted by the digital devices we hold on to dearly.
Blue light itself is not inherently dangerous; it plays an essential role in boosting our attention, reaction times and even mood as we naturally get it from the sun. However, being exposed to blue light at the wrong time has a negative effect, it suppresses the melatonin hormones that help us sleep, leaving us more awake than ever.
If we insist on bringing our devices to the bedroom, prolonged exposure to blue light might result in impaired memories, lowered attention span and performance, which will affect us both physiologically and psychologically.
Having a sufficient amount of sleep allows our brain and body to recover. So when you're about to turn in, it is time to put your phone away! To help you get a good night rest, here are some practical ways to stop sleeping with your phone:
Work and leisure simply never ends. You can find a healthy balance and boundaries between the two; it's how you spend your time without compromising your rest. Practical action plans can be helpful in this process, for example, designate a "home" spot for your phone, give yourself ample time to "rest", and engage in alternative activities like reading and exercising.
While none of us may have an old school alarm clock due to the convenience of technology, that doesn't mean we shouldn't have one. Having one nearby would significantly reduce our blue light exposure while leaving us with no room to wiggle our way through the excuse of using our phones as "the only alarm". Plus, you can't snooze your way out of this real alarm clock when it rings!
If you really, really, really have to use your phone, we understand, so here are some other short term solutions you can consider:
As the name implies, it serves as a blue light blocker. Studies have shown that these glasses help to improve the melatonin hormone to sleep with ease even as one continues on their night digital routine. You too can wear one as you go about your day.
"Avoid looking at bright screens within two to three hours before sleeping.", that's the usual advice doctors would give. As an alternative, you can turn the night mode function on to cut down on blue light exposure.

Watch is fine and is what I expected for the price. Unfortunately the hour needle has scuffed polish or a greasy finger print marring it. Would have been easy to avoid if QC was better. Expected more for a quartz watch at this price.
Beautiful watch. Wish I could have kept it. It was too small. I didn't realize with my need to wear reading glasses, that I also need a larger watch! :)
I was really pleased with the quality of this watch when it arrived. I had held my breath hoping the photos online were true to the actual product quality, turns out they were, and I was pleasantly surprised that the real-life watch was far superior than I had expected. I'm thrilled by the little details such as the small design stamps on the band and back of the watch which denote that this piece and its parts are original August Berg and not outsourced, the solid sapphire glass, and the clever wrist strap removal levers. Its just very, very well done in general.
This watch is so pretty and I love the colors.
It’s one of my special occasion watches and really adds to fall/winter outfits.
I wish the strap was a bit longer - I got the 30mm watch and the strap is quite short for my wrist (which is normal sized!)
I might swap out for a rose gold mesh band if possible.
