The Shocking Truth: How Screen Time is Ruining Your Zzz’s!

Many of us are guilty of spending hours in front of screens, whether it’s scrolling through social media, binge-watching our favorite shows, or working late into the night. But did you know that this screen time could be negatively impacting your sleep? Studies have shown that the blue light emitted from screens interferes with our body’s natural sleep-wake cycles, making it harder to fall asleep and stay asleep. Additionally, the constant stimulation from screens can increase stress levels and make it difficult for our minds to relax before bedtime.

Furthermore, using screens right before bed can trick our brains into thinking it’s still daytime, disrupting the production of melatonin – the hormone that helps regulate sleep. This disruption can result in poor quality sleep and leave us feeling tired and groggy the next day. To combat these effects, experts recommend limiting screen time before bed and creating a calming bedtime routine to signal to your body that it’s time to wind down. By being more mindful of our screen habits, we can take control of our sleep health and improve our overall well-being.
