Taking technology to bed

Not only can the glow of your phone and computer keep you awake, but their lure and sounds can also pull you away from your pillow. Keep your gadgets out of the bedroom. Then you won’t be tempted to check email or texts or go online if you can’t sleep. If you can’t bear to cut the cord, at least put your devices on mute so you won’t be distracted if someone’s trying to get in touch when you’re trying to fall asleep.
