Getting better sleep

Separating Sleep Time From Screen Time

Ensuring that screens don’t stifle your ability to get enough high-quality sleep is easy, but requires planning. The Sleep Foundation offers the following tips:

  • Create a technology-free bedroom.
  • Decrease your screen time during the day and the night.
  • Don’t work in bed.
  • Avoid looking at screens two to three hours before going to bed and establish a bedtime routine that does not include electronic devices.
  • Keep screens out of the bedroom and reduce light as much as possible.
  • Read printed books rather than e-readers, tablets, or computers.
  • If you must use a screen in the bedroom, dim the brightness on your device, use “nighttime mode” on your device, or wear blue-blocking glasses.

I am a wife, mother, and author. I taught high school for 27 years and I was a hospital and hospice chaplain until my health required that I retire. I miss my hospital coworkers and cannot imagine how terrible this year and last year have been. I want to be there for them in at least this small way.
