   Electronic devices blamed for poor sleep story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - How well did you sleep last night? If you don't feel well rested, you may want to blame your electronic devices.

A new poll from the National Sleep Foundation shows about 95-percent use an electronic device within an hour of going to sleep.

Their light and noise may be disrupting your sleep cycles by tricking your body into thinking its daytime, stopping the production of a sleep hormone.

They're recommending an electronic curfew, shutting everything off one-hour before bedtime.
