Work consumes a huge chunk of our lives as it is! Keeping your desk out of your room is a good idea if you can. This might not be as easy for those of you who have a roommate and no extra office space, but you can always try setting goals for yourself to work outside of home in a local coffee shop, at your dining table or elsewhere when needed.

And no, it's not a good idea to have your bed as a desk either! Ban that laptop from your bedroom for a MUCH better night's sleep, free of work stresses.

This is a toughie and such a personal decision, but even if you say you're only going to use your phone as an alarm for for emergency calls that might come in, you'll most likely sneak in a social media peek or email check if you don't completely ban it from the bedroom. If you just don't want to get another type of alarm clock, make a rule to set your phone to airplane mode every time you do bring it in the bedroom.

Another very personal decision! But many stats have shown that it might not be a good idea to have a television in a sleep space, from watching engaging or stressful shows before bed to falling asleep with the TV on to relationship downfalls. You might have a hard time getting your partner to agree on this one, and if so, set some TV boundaries—these might include no stress-inducing shows before bed (this even means the news!) or agreeing that you'll take 30 minutes of no-TV time before nodding off to read a book, talk about your day or meditate.

You might be a bit flexible with food and drink in the living room or other areas of the house aside from the kitchen and dining room table, but it really has no place in the bedroom. Especially if you're snacking right before bed, which has been shown to increase health issues such as heartburn, weight gain, sleep disturbance and asthma.
