hour before bedtime is aggravating this matter
US sleep foundation conducted this study; pattern of usage of technology---
artificial light exposure between dusk and bedtime, suppresses the release of
melatonin which is important for sleep causing the person to stay alert
Light being emitted from electronics and used an hour before sleep suppresses
melatonin in order to sleep
