Electronic devices interrupt sleep patterns
If you didn't sleep well last night, it could be your tablet or phone's fault.
Electronic devices are being blamed for sub-standard sleep cycles. The national sleep foundation polls show about 95 percent of Americans use an electronic device within a hour of going to sleep. And most adults, and even children, have at least one electronic device in their bedrooms.
But the light and noise from these devices can disrupt sleep cycles by tricking your body into thinking it is daytime, and that makes your body stop making a hormone that helps you sleep. Experts say you should try an electronic curfe - they suggest turning off all electronic devices an hour before bedtime.
