What You Can Do

The first thing you can do is limit your screen time before bed, turning all screens off at least two hours before you plan to fall asleep. This is the perfect time to catch up on your reading.

You can also download an app called f.lux, which adjusts the colour of your computer’s display to the time of day — warm at night and brighter during the day — and cuts the blue light being emitted. There are similar apps for phones as well. All of us here at CE use these apps and have really noticed an improvement in our sleep quality.

HERE is a page from their website that provides more research into what staring at screens can do to your sleep, as well as the science behind the f.lux app.

Regardless of whether you are worried about your sleep, we can all benefit from a daily break from our smartphones and other screens.
