Bright before you go go to bed is a good or a bad thing. Is it the phone. Is it the blue blue light it is. Is it just the fact that you are getting your brain going again in some way right before you go to bed. I have heard that it's not necessarily the blue light. It's actually what you're doing. That makes it hard to sleep or makes you have bad sleep or whatever it is so I try and be pretty good about not looking at my phone phone for like maybe the last half hour before I go to bed but I'm very bad about it So give it a shot see if you can avoid looking at your phone. I pat or computer or whatever right before you go to bed so that is it for this episode. Thank you very very much for listening and until next time this is me reading the dictionary goodbye.
