Difficult Sleeping? Try Shutting Off Your Electronics

Open the Book, Put Down the Tablet at Bedtime

How electronic devices can affect sleeping

Light from electronics (tv, computer, tablets, etc.) stimulate the brain and make it more difficult to get to sleep. A good rule of thumb is to shut off all screens at least an hour before bedtime and do something relaxing during that time (read a real book, listen to guided meditation, take a bath, etc.). This is especially helpful for students who have difficulty shutting off their minds and initially getting to sleep.
