Ten reasons to start tonight.
Devices in the bedroom are sleep killers.
Sleep is key to mental and physical health.
No sleep = bad mood, less energy, low motivation, impatience, no control over anything, cognitive impairment, guilt about procrastination and useless arguments…you see what I mean.
Here are 10 reasons why you should consider removing your phone from your bedroom:
1- You are tired.
2- You have tried many things to sleep more or sleep better, but nothing has worked well.
3- You always succumb to the temptation of double-checking on something in bed, and you end up scrolling your evening/night away.
4- You have trouble falling asleep after finally turning your phone off.
5- Your eye fatigue is increasing.
6- You would like more intimacy with your partner.
7- You feel out of touch with your emotions.
8- You are craving some real ME-time.
9- You wake up exhausted regularly.
10- You think you are not living up to your potential.
Yes, turning your bedroom into a phone-free zone can lead to:
A better connexion with yourself
How does that sound?
Now, hear me well: it won’t happen overnight; it takes a little time to implement and embody a new habit. And, of course, screens aren’t the root of all evil, but if you don’t give this a try, you are less likely to get out of your sleep deprivation misery.
If you think that it sounds worth it, but the FOMO holds you back, you can:
- Write down the reasons why you want to do it.
- Write down all the things you are afraid to miss.
- Find an accountability partner.
- Read the upper lists out loud to your “no phone in the bedroom” partner.
- Decide at what time and where you will store your devices.
- Start on that evening.
- Debrief in the morning.
- Keep on going for a week, and talk daily with your accountability partner.
I would love to hear about your Phone-free bedroom experience; you can write a comment to let me know how it went!
