1. Tech in the bedroom
You take your smartphone and tablet everywhere, so it’s not unusual for your gadgets to hit the sack with you, but these accessories can interfere with snoozing. “Using these devices at bedtime has a significant impact on sleep quality. For people who struggle with sleep, technology should be turned off two to four hours before bedtime,” says Dr. Samuels. The bright light emitted from smartphone and tablet screens can interfere with your internal body clock’s sleep mechanism, which prevents your brain from relaxing and for sleep to take hold.
