Researchers say people with Smartphone and Tablets have a harder time going to sleep at night.  Studies suggest that lights from the devices make harder for people to sleep.   I’ve most definitely fallen victim of this, dark room and bright devices are a no go.

This suppression, especially in teenagers, can lead to trouble sleeping at night, according to researchers led by Mariana Figueiro, director of the LRC’s Light and Health Program.

“Our study shows that a two-hour exposure to light from self-luminous electronic displays can suppress melatonin by about 22%,” Figueiro says in a statement. “Stimulating the human circadian system to this level may affect sleep in those using the devices prior to bedtime.”

Wondering how this problem can be solved as we become even more dependent on our devices? Figueiro recommends dimming your backlit devices at night to minimize melatonin suppression.
