Why do you think some people are able to focus better than others?

That they are able to get more done in a day than others can?

Setting aside the obvious differences in terms of economic status, work status, marital status and/or parenthood, there must be a reason why some people always manage their time better than the rest.

In the digital age, that can very easily come down to your relationship with your devices.

There are multiple reasons why you need to turn off your devices before bed. I’ve listed a few of them here.

  1. It makes falling asleep harder. If you struggle with insomnia, try not looking at devices for 30 minutes to an hour before bed. Do this daily for a week and see the difference it makes to your sleep quality.

Simple tips to release you from your phone addiction through the day and before you sleep:

  1. Do a phone declutter exercise. I guarantee this works amazingly well.

These are very simple tips, as you can tell. But a consistent , repetitive habit will help you slowly overcome your phone reliance and give you a better night’s sleep.
