If you're looking at your phone before bed, you're ruining your sleep schedule.
Sure, there are ways that we can mess up our sleep schedules throughout the day, but did you know that you could actually be messing up your sleep schedule just with your nightly routine? It’s hard to really nail good sleep hygiene, but if you avoid these common mistakes, you’ll be well on your way:
- Going to sleep when you aren’t tired
- Falling asleep with the TV on
- Hitting the snooze button
- Sleeping with too many pillows
- Sleeping with your pets
- Drinking coffee in the afternoon
And the absolute worst thing you can do for your sleep schedule at night? Your nightly peruse through social media. Staring at the screen of your phone before you go to sleep can actually make it so you don’t sleep as well. Make sure you’re practicing good sleep hygiene!
