The blue light emitted by phones can interfere with the body's natural sleep-wake cycle. Exposure to blue light before bed suppresses the production of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep. Phone-free evenings can lead to improved sleep and overall better health.
Using your phone before bed can cause a disruption to your sleep patterns. Poor sleep leads to fatigue and reduced productivity the next day. A phone-free bedtime routine creates a restful environment that promotes great sleep. Improved sleep can enhance cognitive function and productivity.
Our brains are not designed for constant stimulation, which activates our fight-flight response, or our stress response. We’re just not wired to be available to the rest of the world 24/7. By taking some time away we find what we were seeking all along, a sense of peace, calm and presence.
