Electronics are a nighttime no-no

During my school days, whenever I couldn't sleep I would pull out my laptop. This routine, unfortunately, did more to prevent sleep than promote it.

Our bodies' are great at creating associations. The minute you do an activity in bed other than sleep or sex, your body will take note and consider it an acceptable bedroom pastime. Sadly, this will only serve to make your body less likely to associate your bedroom with sleep.

Another issue with using a laptop (or any other electronic device) in the bedroom is that it can interfere with the release of the sleep-enhancing hormone melatonin.

Lastly, many people use electronic devices for work, which will make this activity anything but relaxing. Your work should be nowhere near your bedroom, a room reserved for calmness and tranquility.

So, if you can't sleep, steer clear of electronic devices. They will do everything but get you the rest that your body needs.
