Our screen time impacts our sleep time

“Experts say there are several reasons why we may be waking up tired, and simple lifestyle changes can often correct the cycle of sleepiness”–Paul Ebeling

It is a familiar scenario, especially in the Dog days of Summer. You’ve had your 7-9 hours of recommended sleep, but wake up groggier than you went to bed.

Blood flow to the brain is slower for 30 mins upon waking up. That sleepy sensation can last anywhere from 15 mins to an hour for most people, although some experience longer frames.

Our screen time impacts our sleep says an associate professor of food science and nutrition at Michigan State University who studies the interaction of nutrition and sleep. “Using computers, tablets, cell phones, and TV’s too close to bedtime can inhibit melatonin release and delay sleep onset, so it’s best to shut them down an hour before bed to avoid extra exposure,” adds a fellow of the American Academy of Sleep. We sleep best in a dark, cool room with a temperature of between 67 to 69 degrees, so if you are falling asleep with the TV on, you are robbing yourself of quality sleep.

According to Prevention, some people are genetically programmed to be night owls or early birds. These tendencies are genetically predetermined and while they can be modified to some degree, “one cannot be replaced by the other.”
