Doctors say if you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, technology could be to blame.

If you take your smartphone to bed or surf the web after the lights are out, the bright light from your devices keeps the room from being totally dark.

Experts say melatonin, a sleep hormone, can be influenced by how much light is around you. Doctors say a good night’s sleep could be as simple as leaving the tablet on the table.
