Everyday Well-Being

Pledge to end your "screen time" at least 1 hour before bedtime tonight.

How to do it

Tonight, pledge to stop watching TV, playing video games, or looking at your computer or phone at least one hour before you go to bed.

Why it matters

Watching your favorite show or catching up on Facebook might be fun right before bed, but it can interrupt your sleep and make for a less restful night. That's because the light and motion from the screen activates the brain and creates an alertness that can keep us awake. Powering down early lets your brain relax and get ready for good rest, and good rest means you'll be better able to deal with whatever challenges the next day throws your way.

Fun fact

Giraffes sleep only about 2 hours per day, in short bursts - and all while standing!
