Paint a picture in your mind of every single person you know connected to you through a rectangular gadget. Yes, that gadget that you are probably holding in your hand right now. Picture every human being that is attached to you in some way through your phone.
Emotionally and spiritually connected.
Through a rectangular gadget.
Let’s great really specific and think about that smelly, high-pitched laugh colleague at work that you may not love that is affixed to you through your work email.
Visualize taking that person with you into bed or even sitting beside you on your night table via your phone. Do you see them?
Picture every single one of your Facebook friends’ faces staring at you as you lie in bed.
Envision every person in your contacts list wanting to connect with you about their stuff, their feelings and their lives as you lie your head down on your pillow at night.
Imagine all those people’s hands reaching out to touch you as you fall asleep.
Feeling overwhelmed with all these “connections” and faces staring at you?
NOW GET THAT PHONE OUT OF YOUR BEDROOM!
Get a good old fashioned plug-in the wall alarm clock.
Charge your phone in the bathroom.
Better yet, charge it in the kitchen or the hallway.
Just leave all those people, those tethers and those beeping and booping noises from that rectangular gadget out of your bedroom.
Because Sexy Neck works with partners all over the world, his phone used to light up like a Christmas tree all hours of the night and wake me up multiple times as the emails, texts and WhatsApp messages came in.
We have been charging our phones in the bathrooms for the last month and guess what, we haven’t missed a single thing.
Not one single thing!
I am so grateful for this new habit and I am never going to bring the outside world into the bedroom again.
Be really free.
Let me know if you decide to give this try.
Sleep well my friends and love what you do!

Excellent Excellent article!
As a self professed cellphone addict, I think this is a very good suggestion. Baby steps……toward freedom.
Phones are really like a “drug”. We try to have parameters on them. Your bedroom is in a perfect spot to not bring them up there! It is truly a sanctuary.
