If winding down with the television on is a favorite way to prep for sleep, you might be setting yourself up for a night of tossing and turning.
The National Sleep Foundation advises:
- You’re more likely to stay up later if you’re watching TV.
- Watching violent TV before bed can make you feel anxious before sleep.
- The bright, artificial light of your TV wakes your brain and may thwart the natural processes of preparing for sleep.
