Thanks for sharing! I always leave my phone charging in a different room before bed. For me, it's just helpful to have that physical distance to signify that it's time to sleep and the phone won't be needed for at least 8 hours. Our phones must be sick of us by the time bedtime rolls around. Need to give them their peaceful beauty rest, haha.
