To Sleep Better: Don'T Check Email At Night

11

This Sparked Me!

For awhile, having my email accessible right by the bed, I would check new mail during a middle-of-the-night wake-up. What a mistake! Several times, the content of an email would get my mind whirling leading to sleeplessness. Therefore, I now refuse to look at email from bedtime to wakeup time in the morning and my sleep has been much better as a result. emoticon

    i have heard that reading email first thing when you wake up is also bad. the best time i guess would be early in the evening when you have a few extra minutes. emoticon
