3 benefits gained from turning my phone off at night

Benefit #1: Improved Sleep

Phone screens produce blue light. That blue light disrupts the production of melatonin, a hormone which helps regulate circadian rhythm (your sleep cycle). Blue light exposure makes it harder to fall asleep, and also makes it harder to wake up in the morning.

Benefit #2: Clarity of Mind

This benefit has fewer roots in scientific proof. But the mental math checks out.

Benefit #3: Reduced Exposure to Radiation

Exposure to radiation has become a big concern of mine in 2020. Throughout the day we’re constantly exposed to radiation through our devices and our wifi.
