Welcome to the How to segment of this series. One of the most common questions that I get almost on a daily basis, if not daily, in my practice, at least several times a week is how to sleep with your cell phone funny question, but has some huge implications in terms of health and longevity. The best is if it can be avoided, if you don't need your phone in the bedroom, leave it out of the bedroom. It has to be there and you have to have it on maybe you're in a job or position that requires people have access to you. You know if you can put it in airplane mode in allow only select calls to come through until the iPhone has a feature where you can allow certain people to break through the block, if you will, can put it in Do Not Disturb mode, if need be.

Airplane Mode is the best. I use a sleep tracking program. I talked about this in the course about the specific benefits of this program. And it's once in airplane mode. It still can capture the data but I don't get any disruptions at all and understand and have some courtesy for your partner in bed that you know your push notifications you Your Twitter pings and Instagram notifications are disruptive to everybody who can hear them. And Don't peek at your phone.

You know, it's really tempting sometimes for people to wake up and look at their phone and want to see what time it is. And that's normal. But understand that any light source will shut off melatonin production for the rest of the night. And that has a negative impact on sleep quality. And so avoid the temptation to peak and certainly don't be checking for, you know, notifications, that just pulls you right out of deep sleep, and disrupts the sleep cycle for the night. And then the last is em wave blocking devices.

Yeah, I know, there's some controversy around this, but my take on it is the phone is basically transmitting energy waves continuously. And a lot of times that energy is right next to your brain, or it's in your pocket next to your reproductive organs. And if there's a way to mitigate even some of that energy, I'm certainly willing to spend just a few bucks to accomplish that. This is the device I use on the phone here. There are tons of them out there. You can just google it on on Amazon or whatnot.

And you'll find Many of them out there, but I feel at least in my personal professional opinion that if there's a way to mitigate some of the energy that that gets transmitted into our bodies, I'm willing to make the effort to do so. So that wraps up this short section on how to properly sleep with your cell phone.
