18. Shut Off Your Electronics
People believe that using their phones before bed helps their brains become more tired to fall asleep more quickly, but it does the opposite. Electronic devices emit blue light, which keeps the brain attentive. So while you think you’re helping yourself fall asleep, you’re making your brain remain more alert for much longer. It’s best to stop using electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bed to give your brain time to adjust to being without light to prepare for sleep.
