Sleep, can be so elusive and yet it is so necessary. Do you fall asleep fast and then awake a few hours later, confused about whether it is actually morning or knowing it’s going to be another long night? What do you do when you awake, get up and make tea, count sheep, flit about restlessly waking your sleeping partner, try to mediate, focus on your toes or do you pick up your smartphone? The later is known to interfere with sleep, one glimpse and it takes you away, you’ll view, read, consume everything about the world in just a few hours and then when it is time to arise, you’ll find yourself exhausted and so on. I’ve long banished my phone from my nighttime routine, nightmode is my prompt to peace, I put my phone to bed, tucked up like a little cradled baby and I feel soothed. Sleep hygiene is essential, reading is allowed with a physical book, not a beaming device and it doesn’t matter too much which book you choose. Phone dependence is an epidemic and needs managing, cold turkey doesn’t have to hurt. Keep nighttime special, relax and enjoy it, we’ll all be there in the morning…
