The final piece of advice is, do not go near your phone if you wake up in the middle of the night. Phones, tablets and other electronic devices give off a very focused blue light that wakes our brain at a really deep level. It’s going to be hard to go back to sleep after that.
You can put your phone by your bed though, to look at it when you get up.
Actually, I keep mine in another room. I went back to an old-school alarm clock because that doesn’t interrupt sleep. As we age, we have to be really conscious of all the things that are getting introduced into our lives to enable us to have a higher workload.
I don’t think that’s a benefit I want to explore while in bed, so there is nothing positive about keeping my phone next to my bed.
I love your advice, Ashley. It’s going to help a lot of women; I really do appreciate your insight. Thank you and take care.
