Do you really want to fall asleep to the latest post on your newsfeed?

Most people don’t. And yet, they continue to take their phones to their bedroom.

A survey with more than 7,000 smartphone owners showed 80% check their phones within 15 minutes of waking up.

All these people waste their health. This study showed consistent evidence of an association between access to devices and reduced sleep quantity and quality.

By sharing your bed with your smartphone, you get less and worse sleep than somebody who abandons their phone. Plus, with a phone as your alarm, you’ll start your mornings in a highly unproductive way.

That’s why people like Ryan Holiday ignore their phone whenever possible:

“It’s my life and it’s ticking away every second. I want to be there for it, not staring at a screen. Now some mornings, if I am writing, I might not touch my phone until lunch. On those days, I’m happier and more productive.“
