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.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
