I’ve been told I’m weird more than once before. Especially when it comes to my sleeping habits. Sleeping is one of my top favorite things to do, as long as my surroundings are just right.
My husband likes to tease me and says I’m like the Princess and the Pea. While that’s not entirely correct, it isn’t too far off base either.
I am all about comfort.
I have the perfect mattress with down pillows and a down comforter. I buy good quality sheets and slipping into bed each night is like heaven.
But here’s where the “weird” comes in.
I don’t like any lights in my room. None. Not even the glow of a clock. And speaking of clocks, I also don’t want any electronics in my room. No cell phone, computer, TV, clocks, nothing.
I think it messes with your brain to have that stuff around while you sleep.
And this can be a bit annoying to my husband. I’ve noticed he’s been hiding his cell phone by his side of the bed. He gets up early and for some reason has a need to know what time it is.
I’ve often said that sooner or later there will be proof that I’m right about this. And the other day John sent me an article about how even the smallest of light in your room during sleep can lead to depression.
Yep, next there will be proof that having your cell phones, computers, electronic clocks, ipads, etc. causes cancer, or whatever.
So do you sleep with a light on?
Is your cell phone right next to you all night?
