Charge your devices outside of the bedroom for a better night’s sleep

Place your devices outside your bedroom 30 minutes before you go to sleep.

Your devices’ blue light prevents your body from producing the sleep hormone melatonin, and research has shown that keeping phones and tablets in our bedrooms can disrupt sleep even when they’re not being used.

How to do it

  • Set a specific time at night when you regularly turn off your devices, ideally at least 30 minutes before sleep.
  • Create a space for your devices to charge outside of the bedroom. Consider the Thrive Phone Bed for inspiration.
