I'll admit that I'm not the best at keeping my sleep space the most sleep-friendly. I check Instagram before I go to bed and I pound the snooze button regularly. (Health editors: They're just like you!) I know those things are bad for me. But this week we discovered some other surprising bedroom items and habits that can destroy ZZZs.


Reporter Nicole Pajer talked to sleep experts about what they'd never keep in their bedroom. Their answers may inspire you to revamp your sleep space.

If you've turned on a TV anytime in the last three years, this report may not come as a huge shock to you. Recent data found that the majority of U.S. adults say the upcoming 2020 election is already a significant source of stress for them.

A minute and change

 

Got a spare minute? Use it to change your life. Our 'A Minute And Change' series will help you become happier, healthier and more productive by doing one thing a little differently. This week's tip comes from activist and actress Laverne Cox on the one small happiness habit she practices each day. She told The Cut:


As soon as I wake up, I try to write down five things I’m grateful for. Then I’ll do some transcendental meditation, at least 20 minutes. If I jump into the day without meditating or doing the gratitude list, then I have to do a catch-up at some point, to center myself in my body. But it’s very imperfect, my self-care. I do my best, but it’s messy and hard to keep up with, especially when I have early flights and call times, which is often the case.
