Don’t Tuck Your­self in With an In­sta Story

Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Body -

A 2017 study sug­gests that surf­ing the socials 30 min­utes be­fore pass­ing out leads to worse sleep than if you quit Lik­ing pics hours be­fore you’re in bed. Rea­sons for this in­clude: Your phone’s blue light curbs your nat­u­ral mela­tonin flow, so­cial me­dia can cause cog­ni­tive arousal (i.e., that feel­ing when your ex tags his new GF), and hours feed­ing your habit dis­place sleep time. To wake up re­freshed, stop scrolling half an hour be­fore bed.
