Yes it does help. When you use your phone or other device right before you sleep your brain become active and it’s harder to fall asleep. It’s really helpful to leave your device at least 30 minutes before you sleep
Yes, it makes sure i receive my required amount of healthy sleep, also gives my brain enough time to rest and be stress free
I often find it hard to put away my phone before i go to bed but when I do, it gives the brain time to rest and i usually Sleep better
It definitely helped to put my phone down and not look at it for a long time. I did still watch TV but that's the next step.
It really does! I enjoy being able to wind down after a long day. I spend more time on reading books, meditating and stretching, which is great!
I don't know if disconnecting helps but the activities I do before sleeping definitely helps. Like reading a book or listening to music helps a lot & relaxes me.
It does for me. I stretch and meditate right before I go to bed and after I set my alarms and such for the next morning. I’ve found that even though it’s been less than a month or so, it’s easier for me to fall asleep (I normally take a whole alternate reality dream scenario at least) and that I feel calmer and more relaxed when I finally lie down for the night. I think the meditation is the most helpful part for me because it quiets my brain and I feel more centered and focused on the present which makes it easier to fall asleep (less what if’s and should haves)
Yes it does! You should also make it a habit to go into a quiet and dark place with some music to allow your inner peace to awaken. I did this for the first time yesterday and I have never slept better!
Disconnecting for the night did help me! I was doubtful because I have a sleep disorder called Idiopathic Hypersomnia where I’m more tired than the average person due to poor quality sleep, and I need more sleep than average. My doctor and I finally found a medicine that helps with some of the symptoms causing my sleep quality to be poor. However, since I can pretty much always fall asleep in my bed and have to fight to not doze off early, I thought electronics wouldn’t matter. It turns out that disconnecting is a good idea for me anyway. I can put my phone on Do Not Disturb mode, use the time to care for myself or quietly do something I enjoy, and I wind up with more refreshing sleep. I’m also not going to bed angry or anxious about something mean somebody said to me on social media.
I believe that it does, especially for me. I have major anxiety and taking that time to just disconnect from social media, TV, etc. Just laying down in bed in the darks listening to ambient soundscapes is soothing. Just allowing your mind to relax and not focus on anything but the soothing sounds.
