According to a new study by the National Sleep Foundation, your late-night electronics usage is as much to blame for your loss of zzz’s as your crying baby

and Sunday’s arbitrarily cruel Daylight Savings. How? Seems the blue light from screens registers as sunlight, which can screw with your delicate internal clock. Your solutions: turn everything off an hour before crashing, or download f.lux, which adapts display colors to the time of day, and may even deliver better sleep. Which you’ll enjoy until the alarm goes off an hour early because of farmers or something.
