Social Media and Poor Sleep - Breathing Space Blog

Just as you suspected, social media is not conducive to good sleep. Researchers found that individuals who devote more than two hours a day to social media are twice as likely struggle with sleep as those who spend 30 minutes or less. It is postulated that social media serves as the brain stimulant. If you’re on, say, Facebook, or Instagram, too close to bedtime, your online time might be directly interfering with your ability to nod off.

Also, the light emitted from electronic devices such as smart phones could well be interfering with your internal, bodily, clock. In any case, less use of social media, particularly close to the time you retire each day is probably a good idea for overall health and for better sleep
