Health Tip: Skip TV Before Bed

How the tube can harm your sleep

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
