Is Your Smartphone Responsible For Your Poor Night’s Sleep?

If you're not getting a good night's sleep, your smartphone may be the reason.

Do you bring your phone to the bedroom with you? I’m definitely guilty of it, I can’t deny that, and before I roll over and turn my lamp off to go to sleep I’m often checking my emails or facebook or twitter. I’ll even pick up my phone for one last check after I put my book down at night and get ready to tuck in. I have a rule for my teenage daughter that she has to have her phone downstairs in the kitchen, turned off by 9pm that I’ve been trying to follow for myself lately, and I’m much more relaxed when I got to bed knowing my phone isn’t sitting beside me waiting for me to check it.
