  • Avoid Blue light

Scrolling through your phone or laptop before going to bed can cause sleep disturbance. It is advised to avoid using electronic devices 2 – 3 hours before going to bed. However, sometimes this is not possible. You can opt for a screen tinting software which reduces the amount of blue light that gets reflected into your eyes. Plugins such as F.lux as well as built in options like the Night Shift on Apple devices can prove to be useful in helping you get better sleep.
