The key to a good night’s sleep

It may not come as a huge surprise, but new research has discovered that turning off your phone before bed could help send you to dream land.

Apparently the light from staring at your screen can stop your body from producing the hormone that helps you sleep.

Switching off your phone before you snooze off might not seem like the most difficult thing in the world, but US researchers recommend turning it off as early as 9pm – horror!

Experts think that phones in general are ‘perfectly designed to disrupt sleep’ and one even went on to say: ‘[phones] make it harder to psychologically detach from the most pressing cares of the day so that we can relax and fall asleep.’

As well as getting a good snooze, turning off your phone before bed means you will be better focused for college or work the next day – who would have thought it would have so many benefits? Not us anyway!
