Sleeping with the Technology

Guys, I’m cheating on my boyfriend.

He isn’t the only one that’s been occupying my bed.

I know it is bold to come out on the social web and admit it, but I need to confess:  I’ve been sleeping with my iPhone. 

And it gets worse. I sleep around too. Not only do I sleep with my iPhone, I sleep with my iPad as well. Sometimes I sleep with both of them at the same time.

Every night I lay down, I plug in my phone next to me, set my alarm, and then fall asleep to the sound of Facebook updates and emails being sent. It’s a disgusting habit.

So tonight, plug your phone in across the room. And if you’re sleeping next to someone, talk to them instead of emailing/texting/chatting/whatever-other-things-happen-on-phones.

For a hot second, before going to bed, don’t be staring at a screen. Just be at peace. And if you’re not sleeping next to someone, there are these things called BOOKS that I’ve heard are pretty good.

So are you with me? Are you sleeping with technology?

Let’s talk.

Happy Thursday y’all!
