I don't understand ... if you can't sleep, how will concentrating on the contents of an iFone help you to sleep? Increased neuronal activity does not increase seratonin levels in the human brain. If you're speaking of using an app that produces white noise or specialized "relaxing sounds" then I could say that yes, your iFone can help.Do iPhones help those that are insomniacs?
What will the entire world do during/after the next Carrington level event?Thats actually my routine also, it feels kinda natural and relaxing.
It may the emit a lot of blue light, but two minutes after reading stuff on the iphone I'm in sleepy land. Of course, it could be what I'm reading. (snore!)Having it play music or white noise may help, but it's been proven that the screens emit the exact kind of light that our bodies interpret as "wake up" signals from the sun. Looking at smartphones makes it harder for you to fall asleep.
Not to say that I don't play with my phone before bed too, but I do know what it's doing to me when I do it.
Depends on the individual. I have two little kids and I could sleep standing up sometimes, so the private time I have reading or watching TV/Movies via itunes or other streaming sources is golden. But I fall asleep about 20mins in generally with a sharp bang on the nose as the iPad slaps me awake as I drop it.Quite the opposite. My iphone and ipad keeps me awake!
Of course, you could always consume about 2-3 glasses of your favorite drink THEN let your iFone play sounds of streams of water running or quiet rainfalls and see how much sleep you get. 'Course, you'd prolly have to outfit your bed with waterproof rubber bedsheets.Are there any nature apps that anyone can recommend, you know, like those nightstand clocks, that can play "shallow streams of water running, birds tweeting, and light rain showers?
