    I can’t say I’m having a threesome because I tend to go to bed alone, unless my dog decides to join lol. But I can relate to how being on your phone before bed can really mess with you. I tried for such a long time to get off my phone before sleeping but I just couldn’t do it. Its hard, if its not my phone its the tv or my iPad.
    I agree with you, we need to take time out from devices. So many times I’ve gone to sleep and had so many thoughts rushing through my mind because I have been scrolling and taking so much in!

      Lol the dog counts! Group chats too 😅 thanks so much for reading Liv~ I doubt very many people are able to do without their devices before bed, hey!

    Very fun take on the subject, and so informative, too! I agree with focusing on your partner, and just making this the priority. It makes all the difference in the world. I suppose for others, it will be hard to get off the phone, but all it takes is practice. Like everything else, this is a habit that can be adjusted.

    Ha ha. You had me going there for a bit. I usually leave my devices downstairs when I go to bed, unless I need to set an early alarm to go pick my daughter up after night shift.

    I feel your pain on the insomnia front. I am a terrible sleeper, despite doing all the “right things” the experts suggest.

    • Shelly DS says

      Haha nope, proudly monogamous 😅 You seem to have the right process already so it surprises me that you still struggle sleeping! Do you take sedatives?

        I try to blame it on age but then I remember I’ve never really been a good sleeper. LOL I sometimes take Benadryl and it helps me get a good night’s sleep.

    Yes! Everything about your post is great and it’s extremely informative. Getting good sleep is difficult without the extra obstacles, my husband and I have been extremely conscious about doing this lately because we started to realize what an impact it actually has. Thank you for this!

    I’m proof that it can be done – going to bed without using devices for at least an hour before. What I’ll do is do a meditation or yoga or read a book on my Kindle (I don’t count it as a device). Sometimes I’ll journal. An hour goes pretty quickly. I definitely fall asleep much faster on those days. Also, I have my phone set to not disturb me after 7 pm. That way I’m not lured to my phone and I refuse to check notifications or messages before bed. You can do it!!

    I LOVE this title! It gave me a chuckle 😄 Yes I admit to having a threesome too often. Especially on the nights I make a new blog post. But I am trying to work on leaving my phone alone at bedtime since I started noticing my husband spending more time on his phone at bedtime too.

    Girl you had me messed up with that opening 😩 but yes I am having a 3some. I too struggle with insomnia it also started in 2005 when I had surgery and the nurses would wake me up every four hours from my medicine now it’s me insomnia and my phone smh

    • Shelly DS says

      Hahahaha that was the point 😛 gosh that sucks since it was something that was supposed to help you, not mess with your sleep (and sanity) for the rest of your life! How are you dealing with the insomnia?

  8. KIKI says

    Right smh but a few years ago I noticed that smelling things help me fall asleep because it relaxes me. I used to sniff my deodorant before bed because it smells like a nice sexy masculine man😂😂😂 but year I started getting into candles
