Soooo much Easier said than done but yea, they're right about that. As difficult as it is, I have started to not use my devices as much before the hour I go to sleep... some nights that is.

Did they do the study with a bunch of 10 year olds? I have multiple smart phones and I don't spend my nights playing on them.
