Turn Off Your TV For A More Restful Night’s Sleep!

0 Shares

According to a study presented at the annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, glowing television screens are the cause for most folks’ chronic sleep deprivation.

Researchers looked at the sleep habits and rituals of 21,475 participants for three years. They found that during the two hours prior to bedtime, watching television ranked as the most common activity. This means more people may be staying up longer than normal to finish watching programs and those alarm clocks are waking people out of their slumber earlier than expected. These two scenarios lead to sleep deprivation, decreased alertness and impaired concentration throughout the day.

Over time, sleep deprivation has been linked to obesity, high blood pressure levels, heart disease and even death. So be sure to minimize your nightly TV time in order to get seven to eight hours of uninterrupted restful sleep.
