Less Screens for More Sleep

If you’re a reader of Business Insider, especially Henry Blodget, you know how they’ve made a business out of making simple article headlines slightly more hyperbolic in order to drive massive amounts of traffic.

With that in mind, saw an article today from Business Insider about how increased screen time from things like looking at your iPhone right before bed actually causes less sleep.   It says, “Too much screen time reduces melatonin, the chemical that makes you sleep.”  This goes with what I’ve heard from a number of people who say the best way to get more sleep is no screens an hour before bed.

Has anyone else experienced this?   Maybe I need to try it.
