Managing smartphones and other devices in the bedroom

By Alica Goodspring

A lot of us can almost not go without our devices for long. Laptops, smartphones, tablets, and much more play an important role in our lives. We get information from them, people contact us through them, and a lot of us that can hardly go a long day without touching them.

However, there are boundaries, and the truth is that the devices should never be in the bedroom, especially when you are in an intimate place with your partner. Whether you are having sex or you and your partner are just enjoying a quiet period together, devices should be place out, so we can be in the moment as long as we can.

Blue light affects sleep

At this point, it is no longer a secret that light is very important in regulating our internal rhythms. Computers, smartphones, televisions, and other electronics tend to emit blue light, and this light can have effects on your sleep and other activities in the bedroom. 

While you’re in bed with your partner, it is important that you experience a sense of relaxation and calmness. However, research from the Harvard and University of Toronto researchers discovered that light in the blue spectrum suppress the natural melatonin levels, thus affecting our bodies. Melatonin induces drowsiness and keeps us in a relaxed state, and by delaying it, light can keep you pointlessly agitated for longer.

Distractions keep you awake

Active and engaging electronics like laptops and smartphones tend to distract you easily. When you are having sex and your phone suddenly rings, you tend to get distracted and you want to check out what is going on with it. At the end of the day, a lot of this will end up killing the mood that you are trying to cultivate in the bed altogether.

When your phone rings or you get notifications repeatedly, you get tempted to see what it is all about, and this could lead to the romantic feeling seeping away. You definitely don’t want that.

Of course, the simple solution here is drawing lines. Understand that there are certain parts of the day where you should be with your partner and you should both be able to enjoy the presence of one another without being unnecessarily disturbed by a device around you. When you devote this time to each other, your relationship is strengthened, and you can build both the physical and emotional connections that are so vital to keeping a healthy relationship.

Personally, I know a lot of couples who do this, and I’ve tried it with my partner as well. He testifies that it works like a charm, and I totally agree.
