“Polls have shown that browsing social media is now one of the most common pre-sleep activities, between going to bed and falling asleep. While it might feel relaxing to lie in bed and check a newsfeed, the reality is that this constant connectivity can have major negative effects on our sleep.”
📱 Your social feed keeps you (and 3.8 billion of your fellow humans) connected and aware of what’s going on in the world. But it can also cause sleeplessness by stimulating your emotions, creating FOMO (fear of missing out) and sending you down YouTube rabbit holes. Sleepstation’s article outlines the problem in depth — and offers great tips for disconnecting to get a better night’s sleep.
📻 Instead of scrolling through Twitter in bed, try one of Town & Country’s best podcasts for sleep instead. Their selection of soothing narrators will gently lull you to sleep like a bedtime story from Grandma.
