7 Things You Shouldn’t Do Before Going to Sleep

We all know that getting a good night’s sleep is important for your mood, your energy levels, and your overall health. It’s also dependent on what you do during the day—how much physical activity you get, what you eat and drink, and how mentally stimulated you are—especially in the hours before you crawl into bed.

7 Things You Shouldn’t Do Before Going to Sleep:

1. Use an e-reader or smartphone
A recent study has revealed that using electronic devices like e-readers and smartphones, or even watching television in or before bed can disrupt sleep. Many experts around the world highly recommend avoiding any light-emitting technology for at least one hour before bedtime. The blue light given off by computers, smartphones, tablets, and TV prevents the production of melatonin which helps the body become sleepy.
